UNITY WINS 2 BAY AIR BASES 



World-Famed 
Boat Racers 
Coming Here 

Eight- Day Regatta 
Should Be Greatest 
Ever Held in West 



TH the possibility of 
) series of races be- 
tween tliree or four 
internationally fa- 
nunis speed Ijoat drivers as part 
of the eight-day program, the 
Seventh Annual Pacific Coast 
Championship Regatta, which 
will be held on San Francisco 
Bay, August 24 to 31, promises 
to be the most unusual and 
spectacular ever held on the 
west coast. 

That it will be well attended 
is shown by a preliminary 
check-up which shows that 
more than five hundred yachts 
and motor boats will line up 
for the parade along the Ma- 
rina waterfront at San Fran- 
cisco. Among these will be a 
number of class champions and 
contenders in the Honolulu and 
Tahiti races which have been 
held during the past few years. 
The regatta, directed by the 
Pacific Inter-club Yacht Asso- 
ciation, a co-operative organ- 
ization composed of a majority 
of the yacht clubs of northern 
California, is made possible 
through the generosity of pub- 
lic-spirited men from prac- 
tically every important com- 
munity in northern California, 
The racing events, which are 
open to every boat owner ir- 
respective of the type or size of 
his boat, will start off with an 
ocean race from Santa Barbara 
to San Francisco; and power 
boat races from Stockton and 
Sacramento to San Francisco. 
The other events will provide 
for cruisers, speed boats, 
schooners, yawls, sloops, row- 
ing races and other interesting 
contests. There will also be an 
illuminated spectacle put on by 
Qreboats and battleships. 

Complete information re- 
garding the activities of the 
regatta may be had by ad- 
dressing Larry Knight, presi- 
dent. Pacific Inter-Club Yacht 
Association, 558 Sacramento 
Street, San Francisco.

Western Paint Manufacture 
Centered Around S. F. Bay 

By CAPEN A. FLEMING 

Manager Industrial Dept. San Francisco C, of C. 



IF wc consider all the paint 
manufactured in the coast 
states as 100%, then we 
find that the paint manu- 
factured in and around San 
Francisco, according to reliable 
estimates, amounts to 50% of 
the Pacific Coast production. 
Furthermore, every type of 
paint and varnish, including 
white lead, is manufactured 
in our bay plants, and from 
here distributed throughout the 
western states and into Mexico, 
South America, the Hawaiian 
and Philippine Islands, Japan, 
China, Australia, etc. 

We have several large paint 
manufacturing plants in the 
area, a number of which are 
brandies of eastern concerns. 
In other words, San Francisco 
is recognized by the paint in- 
dustry, as by other types of in- 
dustry, as being western head- 
quarters city, the city from 
which the entire western mar- 
ket can be served most quickly 
and most economically. Among 
the regional plants which are 
local in ownership, the one at 
South San Francisco is the larg- 



est. In fact it is one of the larg- 
est and most complete paint 
and varnish plants in the 
United States. 

Wlien it comes to the actual 
manufacture of paints, the 
making of white lead should 
first be considered. This is 
made both at South San Fran- 
cisco and in Oakland, and in 
no other place in the entire 
West. In as few words as possi- 
ble, the steps in this slow, but 
important process, are as fol- 
lows: Pure pig lead is melted 
and cast into "buckles," that 
is, thin, perforated pieces 
which present the greatest 
amount of exposed surface. 
Into the bottoms of hundreds 
of pots is poured weak, acetic 
acid, or vinegar. On a project- 
ing collar around tlie inside of 
each pot are placed the lead 
buckles, and then the pots with 
the vinegar below and the 
buckles suspended above it are 
placed on a layer of tan bark. 
This is composed of spent tan 
hark whicli has served its pur- 
pose at the tannery, and damp-

COMMUNITY HARMONY 
PROVES BIG FACTOR 
IN CHOICE OF SITES 



William F. Benedict, chairman of the San Fran- 
cisco Bay Army Air Base Executive Committee, an- 
nounced today a special meeting to be held next Mon- 
day, July 8, to vifhich have been invited Aimer M. New- 
hall, president of the San Francisco Chamber of 
Commerce; A. M. Brown, Jr., president of the San 
Francisco Junior Chamber of Commerce; Congress- 
woman Florence P. Kahn, Congressman Richard J. 
Welch and other representatives of the Government. 
The purpose of the meeting is to expedite the con- 
struction of the Alameda and Marin County projects 
which were approved in Washington last Monday. 



ORD of the fact that a campaign of several 
weelis, put on unitedly by the San Francisco 
Bay region, had resulted in the landing of 
both the proposed Army Air Base at Alameda 
and the proposed Army Bombing Tactical Unit at 
Santa Venetia in Marin County, was received by the 
San Francisco Chamber of Commerce from its Wash- 
ington representative, Mr. C. B. Dodds. 

When first it became known that the Army con- 
templated locating an air base on the West Coast, an 
etl'ort was made to secure this base for the San Fran- 
cisco Bay region. Early in February, 1929, Mayor 
James Rolph, Jr., of San Francisco, called a meeting 
of the mayors, presidents of the Chambers of Com- 
merce, newspaper publishers, members of the boards 
of supervisors and city councils of all the cities and 
counties about the bay. Out of this meeting developed 
authorization for the mayor to appoint an executive 
committee, which would represent the entire bay 
region. 

Mayor Rolph appointed William F. Benedict, assist- 
ant manager and comptroller of the San Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce, as chairman of this executive 
committee, which was known as the San Francisco 
Bay Army Air Base Executive Committee, made up 
as follows: 

William F. Benedict, assistant manager and comp- 
troller, S. F. Chamber of Commerce, chairman. 

V. Macrae Moir, chairman. Aeronautics Cormnitttee, 
S. F. Junior Chamber of Commerce. 

Robert N. Carson, Jr., Marvelous Marin, San Rafael. 

Fred H. Drake, president, San Mateo County Cham- 
ber of Commerce. 

John J. Edy, city manager, Berkeley, California. 

Philip JI. Fisher, Jr., executive secretary to Mayor 
of Oakland. 

Ralph T. Fisher, vice president, American Trust 
Co., Oakland. 

C. W. Click, Richmond Chamber of Commerce. 

Clifton E. Hickok, city manager, Alameda. 

A. R. Linn, manager, Alameda Chamber of Com- 
merce. 

Judge John J. McGrath, San Mateo.

SAN FRANCISCO BUSINESS, JULY 3, 1929 



Convention Delegates Urged by 
Chamber to Visit San Francisco 



^ITH numerous big 
conventions booked 
for San Francisco 
tliis summer, the 
Chamber of Commerce is mak- 
ing special efTorts to induce 
members of the particular 
groups to visit San Francisco. 
Special invitations, in some in- 
stances, are being sent through- 
out the country urging the re- 
cipients to come and enjoy San 
Francisco's famed hospitality 
and the beauty and grandeur of 
tlic city. 

As these conventions are 
scheduled for July and August 
when San Francisco offers a 
cool and invigorating haven, 
while the interior, eastern and 
southern sections of the coun- 
try are sweltering, members of 
the Hospitality Committee of 
the Chamber predict record- 
breaking attendance. Tlie com- 
niiltce is already engaged in 
arranging entertainments for 
the visitors. Automobile and 
sight-seeing trips are being 
planned that, it is thought, will 
especially appeal to the visitors. 

The outstanding August con- 
vention is that of the American 
Photo Engravers' Association. 
Vice President Robert Newton 
I vncli of the Chamber has 
mailed out 500 special invita- 
tions to member concerns urg- 
ing the recipients to attend. 



His letter reads as follows: 

Gentlemen : On behalf of the 
San ■ Francisco Chamber of 
Commerce, this is to extend to 
you a personal invitation to 
come to San Francisco, August 
8 to 10, to attend the meeting 
of the American Photo Engrav- 
ers Association. 

We especially coveted the 
privilege of entertaining this 
convention, first, because it had 
never met in the West, and 
second, because we have so 
many magniflcient attractions 
and scenery that would be of 
interest to tliose in your profes- 
sion. You certainly would not 
regret a trip across this coun- 
try of ours, even if you had 
made the trip before. After 
viewing the attractions of the 
West, you come to San Fran- 
cisco, itself a great printing 
and engraving center. You will 
find a great thriving city, beau- 
tiful in location and, we mod- 
estly trust, noted for its hos- 
pitality. 

The San Francisco Chamber 
of Commerce will avail to you 
its facilities of information 
and other service and, should 
you accept this invitation, we 
would be glad to have some of 
our executives meet you per- 
sonally. (Signed) 
Sincerely yours, 

liODERT NEWTON LYNCH, 
Vice President.

I'jmnierce.

.Mirvelous Marin, San Rafael. 

IIollls R. Thompson, man- 
ni'.lng director, Rerkeley Cham- 
ber of Commerce. 

This committee, representing 
the entire bay area, adopted at 
lis first meeting a policy that 
each community that had a 
sllc to proffer for the Army Air 
Ba.se would work ligltimately 
for the .selection of that site, 
linl Hint once the Army had In- 
iliealed Us preference, all coni- 
iniinlly efforts would cease and 
llii- entire bay district would go 
forward as a unit to land the 
linse for llie chosen spot. 

Tlie San I'ranclsco and Oak- 
land Cluinihers of Cnninierce, 
liavlng nothing of their own tn 
offer the Army, acted as big 
lirolhers In (he campaign, with 
llenedici as chairman of the 
l''.\eeiillve Conimlltee and Jo- 
seph M. Parker, nianagi'r of the 
Oakland Chnndier of Com- 
niei-ce, as vice chairman. How- 
ever, the Oiikhind Chamber was 
Jinlnially on record In favor of 
.Mamedn and the San l^ran- 
elsco Cliamher went on record 
In favor of San Mateo County, 
carrying on a leglllnuite cam- 
paign for the favored spot. 
Thr greatest harmony existed 
llnoughoul. 

The committee forwarded to 
Ihc War lieparlnieni, through 
liciilds al Washhiglon, all maps 
aiul full descriptive matter of 



ach of the sites, including one 
at Alameda, another at Berke- 
ley, a third at Richmond, and 
a fourth in Marin County at 
Santa Venetia. At the very last 
moment, San Mateo County got 
Into the lleld with the proffer 
of a site, through the Schilling 
estate, on Brewer's Island 
which is at the western ter- 
minal of the San Mateo-Hay- 
ward bridge. 

In Washington, Dodds called 
a meeting of all the reprcsenta- 
ives In (>)ngress from central 
and northern California, and 
these representatives agreed to 
go forward likewise with a 
united front to land the Air 
Base for this section of the 
stale. 

Having examined all of the 
maps and data presented to 
him. Assistant Secretni-y of 
War, i'. Trid)ee Davison, in 
ehnj'ge of Army aviation, visit- 
ed the coast and examined sites 
In southern California, In tin' 
hay region and as far north as 
Seatlle. He was the guest of the 
San Francisco (Chamber of 
('ommerce and the San I'l'aii- 
elsco Bay Army Air Base Ex- 
I'cullvc (Conimlltee at Uiiicheun 
on May 17. No endeavor was 
made to have the Secretary

jilr and from the ground, all of 
the sites offered, IncUiding Ihnl

Ing Taelieal I'nil. Other In- 
I'orniallon of a conndenllnl na- 
ture emanating from Wash- 



ington since the Secretary's 
visit had so prepared the com- 
mittee that no surprise was felt 
at today's decision. 

"The San Francisco Bay 
Army .\ir Base Committee is 
overjoyed at this victory," said 
Benedict today, "not alone be- 
cause of the fact that it will 
mean two such important Army 
bases on San Francisco Bay, 
but because it illustrates that 
bay unity and bay harmony 
and bay singleness of purpose 
are not a possibility but an 
accomplished fact. 

"The Army Air Base Commit- 
tee has already decided to keep 
together for the purpose of 
working for the Navy Dirigible 
Base and possibly for any 
similar projects which have for 
their purpose a unified develop- 
ment of the bay district. 



Faster Schedules 
for Air Travels 



Air-mail passenger schedules 
of the Pacific Air Transport, 
between Los Angeles and Seat- 
tle, will be speeded one hour 
and forty-five minutes on the 
northbound trip and one hour 
and fifteen minutes on the 
southbound trip, on and after 
July 15. This company, a unit 
of the Boeing System, has the 
air-mail contract between Los 
.Vngeles and Seattle. 

Under the new schedule the 
mail planes will leave Los An- 
geles at 11 :45 p.m. arriving at 
Seatlle at noon. Southbound, 
one hour and fifteen minutes is 
clipped off between Portland 
and Los Angoles. The planes, 
with mail and passengers, will 
leave Portland at 7:25 a.m. ar- 
riving on San Francisco Bay at 
12:'15 p. ni. and at Los Angeles 
at 5:00 p. m. Tills arrival con- 
nects with night trains to 
Phoenix, El Paso, San Antonio, 
Dallas and southwest points, 
putting Pacific Coast cities 
twelve to twenty-four hours 
closer. 

The inauguration of this new 
record follows a satisfactory 
performance record achieved 
by Pacific Air Transport, which 
became a Boeing line eighteen 
months ago, resulting in new 
Hoeing efiuipment going on the 
line. Iji the month of May It 
Hew every mile on schedule. It 
Is 11110 miles bi'lwein Los An- 
geles and Seallle and the route 
is the second longest alr-mnll 
line In the country.

Mill III Ihr same time Ihr Ian 
bark gives oIT carbon dioxide 



gas as well as heat, and this 
combines with the lead acetate 
to form lead carbonate, i.e., 
white lead. The process re- 
quires 100 days. This lead car- 
bonate is produced in the form 
of a white powder. This must 
be ground and refined, which 
includes cleaning and washing. 
Water is used in washing the 
white lead powder, but no dif- 
ficulty is experienced in re- 
moving the water w'hen it has 
served its purpose since there 
is a pronounced affinity' be- 
tween linseed oil and white 
lead. Accordingly, when the 
linseed oil is introduced into 
the agitated solution of white 
lead and water, the linseed oil 
and the white lead combine and 
sink to the bottom, leaving the 
clear water at the top to be 
pumped off. The process is 

Next the white lead paste is 
ground in revolving stone mills 
to insure complete union of tbe 
white lead with the oil. This is 
now pigment for white paint, 
and it is also the basis of all 
tinted oil paints. To make 
colored paints, or for that mat- 
ter white paint, it is necessary 
to mix pigment with a vehicle 
lo carry it. In oil paints, oil is 
Ihe-vehicle and white lead and 
colors are the pigments. In 
vivid colors white lead is not 
usetl, but only colored pigment. 
The process of paint making 
consists of mixing and grind- 
ing the oil and the pigment, a 
colored pigment being intro- 
<Iuced under carefully stand- 
ardized conditions to insure the 
same shade for each succeeding 
batch of similar paint. All of 
this is under strict laboratory 
control. 

Space does not permit of 
more than reference to the 
mamifacture of varnish, lac- 
ipier, shellac, roof protective 
coverings, house stains, etc., 
which are made here, but as 
stated at the outset, all types of 
preservative coverings are pro- 
duced in large quantities in 
this area, the paint manufac- 
turing center of the West. 



Ship Board Report

F^.A(:ll'lC. C.oast wholesal-

were encouraged today 
by news of a tenlalive 
reporl filed Willi Ihc United 
Stales Shipping Board by Its

The reporl, received today by 
Sell] Mann, nianngrr of the 
Traffic Bureau of the Cham- 
ber of Commerce, recommends 
a material adjustment of rales 
or a ren.Honnble additional 
charge for the extra service of

llons of intervention supporllng 



the complaining manufacturers 
and jobbers were filed by the 
San Francisco, Seattle and Ta- 
coma chambers of commerce. 

During the two hearings held, 
the report says, the fact was 
developed that the volume of 
westbound tonnage has fallen 
ofi', rather than increased, dur- 
ing the practice of free split 
deliveries. "In brief," the re- 
port concludes, "the evidence 
of record in no respect indi- 
cated that free split deliveries 
have at any time increased tlie 
movement of traffic." "After 
examination of all the facts, 
circumstances and argument 
of record, the board should con- 
clude and decide in the instant 
investigation that for the fu- 
ture the according to carload 
sliipments which are split- 
delivered the same rates are 
assessed solid carload ship- 
ments, will constitute undue 
and unreasonable preference 
and undue and unreasonable 
prejudice in violation of para- 
graph 1 of section 16 of the 
Shipping Act, 1916, and a pro- 
liibitory order for the future 
should be entered."

per head this year is liKl.fiO, as re- 
ported to the U. S. Department of 
Ai*riculture as compared with 
!f;io.25 on January 1, 1!)28. 

Sheep raising was first intro- 
duced into Cahfornia by the brini*- 
ing of Merino sheep, which had 
been introduced into Mexico l)y 
Cortez early in the Kltli century, to 
Cahfornia in 177;5 liy the Spanisli 
padres who developed this pursuit 
in the early missions. 

The growing importance of this 
industry to California which we are now taking 
cognizance of as an industrial opportunity was 
recognized as an important California manufac- 
turing problem long before the San Francisco of 
today was even in its embryonic state of develop- 
ment. Diego de Borico, governor of California 
from 1794 to 1800, made a special effort to promote 
the raising of sheep in connection with the manu- 
facture of cloth. At San .Jose every settler was re- 
quired to keep three sheep for every other animal. 
Two hundred were distributed in Los Angeles in 
1796. 

San Francisco in tlie old days, as today, led in 
the promotion of better sheep raising. An old ac- 
count states: 

"The breed at San Francisco was Merino, and 
better than elsewhere, and had increased in num- 
bers from 1700 in 1790, to over (iOOO in 1797." 




The sheep industry rapidly in- 
creased, and by 182,"), at seventeen 
of the missions from San Diego 
to San Francisco, there was an 
aggregate of 1,003,970 sheep. It 
was estimated that the sheep 
owned by the ranchers of that day 
were equally as large as those 
owned by the church. 

From that year on, California 
was the source of supply for 
Merino sheep for the ranches in 
Columbia, Washington, Utah, 
Oregon, Montana and Nevada to New Mexico as 
it is today the source of supply for pure bred 
Rambouillcts such as the rams shown in the title 
illustration which were shipped to Texas. 

The finding of gold in "19 reversed this process 
for a time since many of the sheep from these sec- 
tions were driven to California to supply mutton 
to the miners. This condition, together with the 
development of San Francisco as the shipping port 
for the entire territory, had a (hstinct influence on 
the building of the industry which has placed the 
San Francisco of today as the wool center of the 
Pacific Coast from which was shipped 30,233,000 
pounds of the 19,59 1,000 pounds shipped from Pa- 
cific Coast markets during 1928. 

Seventy-five years ago and up to but a few years 
ago, tile meat packing industry had only tiie local 
consumption as its market i)ut today it is San Fran-

ALASKA 

Home of the 

AIR Minded 

By George Alexander Parks 

Govenior of Alaska 

^ LASIvfV is the most air-minded territory on 

/% the face of the earth, as evidenced hy the 

L — -^ fact that in this great northern common- 

1 ^^ wealtli of the United States tliere is one 

airport for every i)()8 persons, wliites and natives 

included. 

\Yith sixty thousand iniiahitants, Alaska has no 
less than sixty-five airports, with others being es- 





tablished at frequent intervals and with an annual 
expenditure approximately .|1 00,000 by the Terri- 
torial Ciovernment, in cooperation with the com- 
munities where the fields and moorings are 
situated. 

Journeys which, in winter by dog-team and in 
summer by rivers or boat transportation, require 
six weeks or more to accomplish, can now be made 
by air in from three to seven hours. 

Commercial airplanes in Alaska, records show, 
have flown more 
than five hundred 
thousand passenger 
miles with not one 
single fatal accident 
to mar their accom- 
plishment. 

\o airplane is 
ever molested in 
Alaska, because no 
sooner does a man- 
made bird flutter 
down from the skies 
and alight upon a 
landing field in the 
interior of the 
territory than 
the native Eski- 
mos seat them- 
selves all 
around and be- 
n e a t h the 
plane. While 
they are care- 
ful not to touch 
il, lliey conleni- 
plate its slruc- 

tiu'C and meclKinical (L'iails and discuss its 
marvelous ability to rise from the ground and 
soar over vast reaches of little developed 
country. 

To Alaska, liie deveioi)ment of tiie airplane 
means imnunisurably more than il does to 
almost any tillur slalc or territory of the 
rniled States. I'lom Alaska's southern boun- 
dary to its northei'n boundary is aboul the 
sanu' distance as from Canada lo Mexii'o. 
The distance from the southeast corner lo the 
south corni'r of tlu" territory is (-([ual lo Ihal

ground conditions — makes our problem a con- 
stantly increasing one. 

It was just seven years ago that Captain Eilson, 
who has since won fame by his exploring expedi- 
tions in company with Captain \Yilkins, procured 
an old "jenny" type of airplane and oiTered to 



carry mail on regular schedu'e, if necessary at no 
cost to the (Government other than express charges, 
lie started out by plane from Fairbanks to McCrath 
on the Kuskokuim River, a distance of about three 
hundred miles. This trip by dog-team requires 
aijout seventeen days and by river is so hazardous 
as to be highly problematical of success. By air- 
plane it is accomplished in two hours and forty- 
five minutes. 

The success of Captain Eilson's endeavor caused 
the Territorial Legislature to arrive quickly at the 
conclusion that the airplane was to be vital in the 
growth and development of this great territory. 
Accordingly, authority was given the Territorial 
Road Board to expend a portion of the annual road 
funds on the establishment and development of 
airplane landing fields. From SO'v to 50'; of our 
annual road money is now devoted to this purpose. 

On the sea coast, by reason of the rough contour 
of the coast line, it is necessary in most instances 
to take oft" and land with amphibian planes. Be-

of the I'nited States (liiriiii* the hist few years? 
Most of the liarrow'ing |)re(hctions made l)y the 
anti-hiith tariff" propai^ainUsts have failed to niate- 
riahze. None of the sky hii*li prices for necessities 
that they predicted, came ahout, thus supporlint^, 
in fact, the favorite theory of the ardent protec- 
tionist, that an increase in tariff rate covering the 
difference in cost of production at liome and 
ahroad, i)kis the transportation charges to the 
United States, does not necessarily mean an in- 
crease in the price of any commodity. In not a 
few instances, prices are lower today on highly 
protected commodities, than they were before the 
Fordney-McCumber Act be- 
came eff"ective. 

The same shop-worn at- 
tack, in which the bogey man 
of high prices is being worked 
overtime, is employed against 
the pending bill. If history re- 
peats itself, these scarehead 
statements will prove to lie 
just as bad prophecy, if, and 
when, the present bill becomes 
effective. 

How is the tariff" bill made? 
Is it a slipshod, log-rolling, im- 
l)roviscd piece of legislation, 
the tyro in politics might as- 
sume from his scanty knowl- 
edge of how things are done 
on (Capitol Hill? 

Perhaps one cannot blame 
Mr. (leneral Public from think- 
ing the tariff" bill is a hodge- 
podge of politics, with about one percent of scien- 
tific deliberation for seasoning. Of necessity, the 
demands of space make it impossible for any 
newspaper to carry an account of everything that 
was done in consideration of a tariff bill. Further- 
more, the chances are twenty to one that if any 
newspaper made such a superhuman attempt, its 
labor would be wasted, for the man on the street 
would much prefer to devour the latest develop- 
ments of a local scandal, than to read Senator So- 
aiul-So's carefully thought out speech on tariff" 
revision. 

Before Mother (congress can give birth to a 
tariff law, there 
must be a wide- 
spread demand for 
tariff revision as evi- 
denced by speeches, 
statements, newspa- 
per editorials and in 
letters to national 
leaders. Once this 
demand has been 





manifest, congressional leaders get together and 
decide that they will take up a tariff" bill. They do 
this invariably, right after an election, because no 
party cares to be responsible for a tariff bill, 
whether the revision is upward or downward, if 
the bill is to become effective just before an elec- 
tion. They want the bill to be in effect, at least a 
year if possible, before the next election, so that 
the bitterness, which is always engendered in tariff" 
legislation, will have subsided, and so the country 
will have had an opportunity to test out, prac- 
tically, the effect of the new tariff" tinkering. If a 
tariff law becomes effective only a few months be- 
fore an election, loud-mouthed 
demagogues might make the 
country believe it was the 
most vicious legislation ever 
perpetrated on an American 
people, even though it was the 
wisest, and the party respon- 
sible might be turned out of 
power as a result. If the law 
has been in effect some time, 
the demagogues may still 
shout their loudest, but sane 
people can still see for them- 
selves, whether the new tariff" 
bill has been helpful or harm- 
ful. 

When congressional leailers 
decide that it is time to again 
consider tariff legislation, they 
announce that hearings will be 
held by the House Ways and 
Means Committee on certain 
dates. This is usually done several months in ad- 
vance, so that leaders of various American indus- 
tries, seeking tariff relief, either upward or down- 
ward, can prepare statements to be presented to 
the committee, much as attorneys present their 
cases to oin* trial courts. The hearings are divided 
up into correlated groups by subjects. Usually 
the committee likes to hear from only one witness 
from each industry, as, say, a proposal to increase 
the duty on magnesite and it likes to have the 
magnesite producers therefore, get together in ad- 
vance of the hearings and agree on a program for 
presentation to the committee. This is not always 
done, but those industries which have been suc- 
cessful in compromising their conflicting interests 
and thus presenting a united program have been 
far more successful in the recent hearings than 
those which were divided. 

The testimony given at the hearings is printed 
the next morning for general distribution. Among 
the first to receive copies are the small army of 
experts employed by the United States Tariff" Com- 
mission. These men check over, and recheck, the

California's Wool 
Industry 

[ continued from page 9 | 

Cisco's fourth largest industry. The 
slaughtering and packing of spring lambs 
has been one of the important factors of 
production which made this position pos- 
sible. Every spring thousands of lambs 
are shipped from local packing houses 
wrapped in sterile cloth in refrigerator 
express trains to the New York and other 
eastern markets. Others are sent alive 
in special trains for eastern killing. So 
much for the meat production, which is 
an important item in sheep production 
but which because of its present develop- 
ment does not offer the opportunity that 
wool does. 

More than half of the sheep in the 
United States were in the western states 
by 1800 and San Francisco had become 
an important wool center since it was the 
natural outlet for most of this wool. Over 
56.000,000 pounds, an amount larger than 
last year's shipments, moved through this 
port from Oregon, Idaho, Nevada 
and Arizona. Agricultural developments 
which followed caused a reduction in 
sheep raising, and a consequent lowering 
of local shipments. 

Sheep are again assuming the impor- 
tance of the SO's and QO's when over 
4.000.000 sheep grazed in the great 
fertile interior valleys of the Sacramento 
and San Joaquin. Sheep have increased 
in numbers over 52 percent during the 
past six years. 

There is a continued tendency in Cali- 
fornia to further expand the sheep in- 
dustry but this expansion is harking back 
to the days of Diego de Borico. Instead 
of the large operators e.xpanding their 
holdings, they are retrenching to some 
extent on account of competition for feed 
and the splitting up of ranges. The ex- 
pansion is noticed principally in the de- 
velopment of small farm flocks among 
the newcomers in the business. 

This expansion is principally on the 
ewe-and-lamb basis and not from a wool 
standpoint. The increasing importance of 
the spring lamb shipments has done much 
to cause lamb producers to neglect the 
wool factor of the business in an attempt 
to secure higher meat prices for their 
product. 

Through the efforts of the California 
Wool Growers Association and the San 
Francisco Wool Trade Association this 
tendency is being counteracted through 
educational work. Through the wider 
introduction of the Rambouillet variety 
of sheep there is a definite tendency 
among the oldtime sheepmen to breed 
both for a uniform wool clip as well as 
for a good market lamb, with every in- 
dication that preference for California 
w^ool will continue in the great markets 
of the East.

ALASKA 

[ continued from page 13 ] 

yond the Alaskan range, however, the 
interior is rolhng country where landing 
fields are developed with comparative 
ease. 

Winter flying in interior Alaska, oddly 
enough, is more simple than summer fly- 
ing, because of the fact that in winter the 
planes are equipped with skis, which per- 
mits them to land almost anywhere, 
while in summer they must, of course, 
land on wheels on prepared fields. 

Before the airplane came it was often 
the case that furs, gathered in the in- 
terior of the country, could not be 



brought to market the same season be- 
cause of the fact that months sometimes 
were consumed in making the hard and 
painstaking journey to market. Now that 
furs, in ever-increasing numbers, are 
transported by air, there is no difficulty in 
getting them to market early in the spring. 
The turnover is consequently much more 
quickly accomplished. 

I might say here that all the money 
invested in airplane equipment and land- 
ing fields in Alaska is Alaskan money. 
Xo outside capital has assisted in any 
degree whatever in this worthwhile and, 
I might say, e.xtraordinary development. 

By dog-team, the distance between 
Fairbanks and Nome is around thirty 
days. By airplane, it is traversed, day in 
and day out. in 63<2 to 7"/^ hours. To

There is no need of watching 
the automatic gas water heater. 
You can have hot water day and

Point Barrow-, on the Arctic Ocean, from 
Fairbanks, the journey requires six weeks 
or more even in the summer. By airplane 
the elapsed time is never more than five 
hours. These comparisons show, in some 
slight degree, just what air transportation 
means to us. 

Tens of thousands of square miles of 
territory in Alaska, with sparse settle- 
ments of people who have made their 
homes there for many years, are entirely 
without doctors or medical service of any 
kind, and even without medicine. Here- 
tofore illness in these regions has been 
serious indeed, but all has been changed 
by the use of the airplane so that now 
doctors, nurses and vaccine can be carried 
to isolated spots within a few hours' 
time. It was not long ago that a smallpox 
epidemic broke out at Mt. \'illage on the 
Yukon River. We were advised at Juneau 
by telegram, the sending of which re- 
quired a two-days" journey by dog-team. 
Within six hours after we had received 
the telegram, doctors and nurses with 
vaccine were on the spot and all of the 
inhabitants, both native and white, were 
being vaccinated against the dread dis- 
ease. 

From this point the doctors and nurses 
made another airplane jump of about 
400 miles to Candle, where there were 
three hundred cases of smallpox, which 
these soldiers of mercy began immedi- 
ately to combat. 

Prospectors use the airplane as the 
cheapest mode of transportation avail- 
able to them. Dredge owners, operating 
in the interior, lengthen their season by 
thirty days or more, simply through the 
use of the airplane in transporting back 
and forth their skilled workers. 

The Territorial Government is not re- 
quired to bear all the burden of building 
the landing fields to which 1 have re- 
ferred. In every case the residents of the 
neighborhoods where the fields are lo- 
cated contribute either in money or in 
labor to the establishment of the field, 
realizing as they do its importance lo 
their individual and community welfare. 

In one small village, thai of Wiseman, 
each man in the place, while and Eskimo 
alike, devoted forty-two hours of labor 
on their landing lieid. Even the children 
do their share because, in ,\laska, there 
are children who have ne\er seen anv 
mode of transportation other than the 
dog-team and the airplane. 

What Alaska has tlone in the ile\elop- 
nicnt of landing fields is but a tithe of 
what the territory expects to accomplish 
ill the ne.\l few >ears. .Alaska is intensely 
air minded, as I have said, and .Alaska's 
brilliant future will be worked out largely 
by means of the airplane. 

I have been able to appear before the 
Ho.ird of Directors of the San I'rancisco 
Chamber of ComniiTce solely through 
ni\ use of the airplane. .\ journey which 
forinerl>- re(|uireil at least a week for me 
Id make has been reduced lo days, or, one 
might say, lo hours. The trip from 
Juneau lo .San Francisco re(|uires about 
six days using usual transportation facili- 
ties, however, it may be made easily in 
one (lay by airplane and without unusual 
fatigue.

Salvaging California s Waste Fruit 



"Just to give you some idea of the 
demand for almond shells for industrial 
purposes, ' said an otificial of the Califor- 
nia Almond Growers at its offices in San 
Francisco, "we recently sent the powder 
company some five hundred tons of 
waste shells, and the prospects are they 
will use increasing quantities in the 
future. 

"We have another important use for 
almond shells — for fuel. At our Sacra- 
mento plant, which is valued at about 
three-quarters of a million dollars, al- 
mond shells are our main source of power. 
We shovel them into the burners, for they 
make excellent fuel. Tests have shown 
that almond shells have an unusually 
high heat content. The almond shells save 
us thousands of dollars in fuel bills. 

"The growers, too, realize the fuel 
value of almond hulls, which they burn 
in their smudge pots, to keep the fruit 
from freezing." 

One of the wonders of horticulture has 
been the introduction of the almond in 
the California orchards, although for 
centuries it had been grown in .\frica and 
all parts of southern Europe. There the 
most important by-product of the al- 
mond has been almond oil. For many 
years Europe has been sending us the 
greatest share of sweet and bitter almond 
oil consumed in this country. 

Some years back the European manu- 
facturers of almond oil faced a serious 
problem — consistently high prices of the 
crude material that entered into the 
manufacture of the oil. So they looked 
about for substitutes, and found that al- 
mond oil could be produced as well from 
peaches and apricots. That development 
started an important industry in the peach 
and apricot growing districts around San 
Francisco. 

Some three or four peach and apricot 
pit cracking plants now operate around 
San Francisco, two in the Santa Clara 
\'alley. and another in Alameda. They 
constitute California's youngest indus- 
try. But the future holds great promise 
for it. And it is the least known of Cali- 
forna's industries. 

Interesting indeed is how the industry 
came to Santa Clara Valley. The inci- 
dent dates back to I88Q. During that 
year the apricot crop was unusually large, 
and the growers had their hands full try- 
ing to dispose of it in the market. Great 
ouantities of the apricots were dried. 
Tons and tons of pits were thrown away 
— it was the grower's chief problem to 
meet the expense of carting the waste 
product to the dump. 

Back in San Francisco, which then as 
now was the marketing center of Califor- 
nia's deciduous fruit industry, the for- 
eign brokers received a strange assign- 
ment — to buy up all the apricot and peach 
pits they could lay their hands on. In- 
quiry revealed- the reason for the un- 
usually heavy demand for California's 
peach and apricot pit kernels in the for- 
eign market — a serious crop shortage and 



tinued from page 7 ] 

increased demand for almond oil. 

The demand for California's waste 
product has continued spasmodically 
ever since, for European manufacturers 
of almond oil must depend upon foreign 
production of the pit kernels. When the 
European manufacturers could not se- 
cure their raw products from the Syrian 
apricot orchards, they drew upon Califor- 
nia, a world leader in peach and apricot 
production. 

Harvesting time in the California apri- 
cot orchards is happy time for the grow- 



ers, for after they have dried the apricots 
or canned them, they have at least 10,000 
Ions of waste pits. Formerly they threw 
the pits away, and incurred some expense 
by doing so. but now the pit kernels, sold 
in the foreign market, net them some 
three-quarters of a million dollars. A 
small percentage of the pit crop is con- 
verted into almond oil at local plants, 
while the greatest share is packed into 
sacks and shipped to Germany and other 
European countries.

LOYALTY 
SUCH AS FEW LEADERS KNOW 



This message is not an advertise- 
ment in the usual sense of thatterm. 
It makes no attempt to sell a single 
Buick automobile. It is rather an 
acknowledgment to more than 
two million Buick owners, who 
have awarded Buick the finest 
tribute ever paid to any motor car. 
Men rarely extend the gift of friend- 
ship to any but living things. But 
the -word friendship is the only term 
that describes the tie existing be- 
tween hundreds of thousands of 
men and women and the Buick car. 
These men and women . . . and 
Buick . . . are old friends. They have 
worked and played together for 
years, and remained true to each 
other all the time. And together they 
have written the most wonderful 
chapter in all motor car history, 
and perhaps in the history of 
all manufactured products 
More than eighty per cent of this 
great family of owners buy Buicks 
again and again— the most impres- 
sive record of owner allegiance 
ever won by any motor car. 
Some have purchased ten, fifteen, 
even twenty Buick cars —during the 



quarter-century that Buick has been 
building automobiles. 

Moreover, these owners alone pur- 
chase more Buicks, year after year, 
than the total production of any 
other individual car in the Buick 
field. 

It is these old friends— and an ever- 
increasing number of new friends 
—that have enabled Buick to per- 
petuate its record of winning more 
than twice as many buyers as any 
other car priced above $1200. 

Buick has given to the world its 
most favored quality automobile; 
but these men and women have 
given to Buick something even 
more precious. 

They have given Buick loyalty such 
as few leaders know — and the in- 
spiration to still greater achieve- 
ment. Is it any wonder that the 
builders of Buick exert every effort 
to repay them with a finer and finer 
Buick— that friendship so pleasant 
may go on forever.

wool for manufacturing operations a 
large portion of it in later years was sold 
to traders "in the grease." that is to say, 
uncleaned as it came from the clip. It 
was not until the coming of American 
settlers and the growth in production fol- 
lowing the gold rush that anything ap- 
proaching the present diversity of manu- 
facturing operations in the woolen in- 
dustry was commenced. 

To satisfy local demands for woolen 
goods and because of the long delay in 
waiting for merchandise to come around 
the Horn, the Pioneer Woolen Mills, the 
first on the Pacific Coast, was established 
in 1S56. at Polk and Larkin streets on 
what was then known as Black Point. 
This mill which manufactured blankets, 
cassimeres. flannel shirts and underwear 
was destroyed by fire in 1S5S but was 
immediately rebuilt on a larger scale. The 
new building was supplemented in the 
SO's by the present red brick building at 
the end of \'an Ness Avenue which is now 
being used as a warehouse by a local auto- 
mobile firm. 

Shortly after the establishment of the 
first mill, the Mission Woolen Mills, 
famous for its superb blankets, was 
founded, in turn followed the Pacific 
Woolen Mills and ne.xl the Golden Gate 
Woolen Mills. Wilhin the few years fol- 
lowing the establishment of the first mill 
in San Francisco, fifteen woolen mills 
located in the state at San Francisco, 
Napa. Petaluma. San Jose, Sacramento, 
Stockton, Santa Rosa, Marysville. Mer- 
ced, Los Angeles and San Bernardino. 

Following the rise of the manul'actur- 
ing side of this industry, although the 
mills used inexpensive Chinese labor, had 
wonderful climatic conditions for manu- 
facturing and an ample supply of raw 
wool at hand, changing economic condi- 
tions caused its decline. The principal 
causes for this decline anti disintegration 
of the industry were the lack of a suffi- 
cient local and western market, and the 
high transportation cost of competing 
against established New Englantl fac- 
tories in the eastern market. 

From the days of the padres until in 
(he SO's all California wool was handled 
only as clipped wool but following that 
date several wool pulleries were estab- 
lished for the removing of wool from the 
skins of slaughtered sheep. In I.S.S7, the 
first wool graded and packed in California 
was done by Donald McLennan. 

The first wool scouring mill was es- 
tablished here in 1S70. following which 
si.v other plants were established and in 
operation by 1878. .-Xt the time of the 
fire in lOOo, all of these eslahlishmenis as 
well as the balance of the industry were 
wiped out.

SAN FRANCIiSCO BUSINESS, JULY 10, 1929 



In the case of clipped wool, the fleece 
after being shorn from the animal, is tied 
with paper twine since other twines are 
apt to discolor and consequently lower 
the value of the wool, placed in large jute 
bags and shipped to local warehouses for 
grading. Wool must be graded since most 
sheepmen raise a number of varieties and 
all of their wool is jumbled together in 
the sacks. 

At the warehouse the sacks are emptied 
and e.xperts separate the wool according 
to grade, being guided by two thoughts; 
to separate whole fleeces by diameter of 
fibre and by the length of the fleeces. The 
reason for this grading is because differ- 
ent fabric manufacturing uses require 
different grades of wool. There are three 
kinds of fabric manufacture, namely, 
the English worsted system which can 
use only long staple wool, the French 
worsted system which can use a slightly 
shorter staple fibre and the woolen mill 
or felt plant which can use either the 
very longest or the shortest known fibre. 

After grading, the wool is repacked in 
compressed wire bound bales for ship- 
ment either to eastern mills as "grease 
wool" or to local plants for scouring. 

Most of the pulled wool on the local 
market is a by-product of local packing 
houses. This type of wool makes up 
about one-fifth of the production of wool 
in the United States. 

Pelts are sent from the packing house 
to the pulley where the pelt is soaked in 
cold fresh water to remove the animal 
heat, washed to remove greases, dirt, and 
vegetable matter, treated with a depil- 
atory, and then the wool is removed by 
graders who pull it from the pelt. The 
wool is then dried and packed in bales for 
marketing in the same manner as is the 
clipped wool. 

Since most worsted mills prefer to mix 
their wools into blends before washing, 
almost four-fifths of the local wool ship- 
ments are shipped in the greasy state. 
This is a distinct economic waste because 
wool loses about 63% of its weight in the 
washing or scouring process. 

Two local plants handle wool scouring, 
one of them which was recently destroyed 
by fire is rapidly rebuilding with new 
modern equipment in addition to machin- 
ery of a Portland plant which they moved 
down here. With the addition of this 
machinery and the new machinery, the 
plant will be able to handle approximately 
35% more wool than previously. 

W'ool for scouring is first separated ac- 
cording to the parts of the animal from 
which it has been obtained, namely, the 
flank, leg, shoulder, neck or head. When 
a sufficient quantity of each kind of wool 
is accumulated it is passed through a 
duster to remove all loose dirt. The wool 
is next. washed in hot water, sweet soft 
soap, caustic soda and soda ash. The 
wool is then rinsed in clear cold water and 
dried. When wool is found to contain 
vegetable fibres such as burrs, etc., it 
must next be carbonized, which is a pro- 
cess by which the wool is treated by sul- 
furic acid and then passed through a bake 
oven where the acid fumes reduce the 
vegetable matter to carbon. The wool is 



then allowed to cool and regain its mois- 
ture from the natural humidity of the 
bay region atmosphere. 

The scoured and carbonized wool is 
next packed in either fresh jute bags or 
paper-lined hydraulically compressed 
bales. It is now ready for the wool buyers 
who whip it to the mills for spinning into 
yarn. 

There are five wool pullers operating in 
the bay region, one in Sacramento and 
one in Los Angeles. Two wool scourers 
operate here and a third has offices here 
and a plant in Stockton. 

SAN FRANCISCO AS A WOOL 
MARKET 

President Edward J. Taaffee, in the 
San Francisco Wool Trade Association 
Annual Report for 1928, states, "San 
Francisco is becoming greater as the wool 
center of the West each succeeding year; 
more resident buyers representing many 
firms and mills of the East are noticed 
each year. More tonnage of wool has 
been shipped from San Francisco in 1928 
than in many years previous." 

This association which includes nine- 
teen of the principal wool dealers of the 
state and all of the thirteen dealers of 
San Francisco, has done much to raise 
both the quality of wool grown in the 
state and to improve to an even greater 
degree the reputation of California in the 
eyes of the American wool trade. Through 
the efforts of this organization and its 
money-back policy, eastern wool buyers 
have been able to place such confidence 
in local dealers that California wool is 



most favorably advertised by eastern 
consumers. 

MANUFACTURING 
OPPORTUNITIES 

There is every reason for San Fran- 
cisco becoming an even greater woolen 
manufacturing center than it was in the 
early days when many mills were flourish- 
ing here. The climatic conditions which 
favored the industry then are just as 
favorable now. Although the cheap labor 
supply (Chinese) is not now available, 
and more educated and efficient supply is 
now available which can produce woolens 
as cheaply as eastern operators following 
training, although wage scales in operat- 
ing Pacific Coast mills are slightly higher 
than in the East. Coupled with favor- 
able climatic conditions is cheap hydro- 
electric power and natural gas which was 
not available when this city was a wool 
factory center better and cheaper trans- 
portation and an ever increasing market. 

The Chamber of Commerce industrial 
engineers estimate that 74%, of the 
11,000,000 people of the western states 
who purchase approximately $115,000- 
000 worth of woolen products yearly can 
be reached at equal or lower freight rates 
than from any other coast city; points 
west of the Rockies can be reached at 
lower freight rates from here than from 
the Mississippi Valley and the 25,000,000 
people living between the Mississippi 
River and the Rockies can be served at 
lower freight rates from this city than 
from the Atlantic Coast. In addition to

A TARIFF BILL 

[ continued from page 17 ] 

Statements made by the various wit- 
nesses so that the committee will not 
be misled through exaggerated accounts 
of conditions or through downright un- 
true allegations. The Tariff Commission 
and its corps of experts know better 
than one might think what the cost of 
production is in Italy of a gallon of olive 
oil. They know the cost of transporting 
it to New York. They know the cost of 
producing the same oil in the United 
States and the cost of transporting it to 
local markets, so that the truthful witness 
with facts that could be substantiated, 
made more progress with the House Ways 
and Means Committee than did the wit- 
ness with doubtful assertions as to the

evils under which his industry has been 
laboring. 

After the hearings have been finished, 
the Ways and Means Committee resolves 
itself into subcommittees, which were 
charged with writing the bill. Some of the 
smart lobbyists thought they would be 
able to learn for their clients, just how 
their industry fared as a result of the 
hearings and many an attempt was made 
to sound out members of these subcom- 
mittees, as to what had been decided 
upon. But the iron-clad rule clamped 
down by Chairman Hawley. which pro- 
vided that no information should be given 
out on what decisions had been made by 
the subcommittees until the bill was 
actually reported to the House, was more 
than a match for the smartest of the tariff 
lobbyists. Washington is still wondering 
how the twenty-five members of the 
Ways and Means Committee kept their 
several thousand secrets so well. But that 
they did is now generally recognized, 
despite careless statements on the floor 
of the House that information was being 
divulged to certain interests. 

There was, of course, much dissatisfac- 
tion with the tariff bill when it finally 
reached the floor. Several hundred pro- 
ponents of tariff increases were disap- 
pointed, and in many instances they 
represented influential industries. So 
supplemental hearings were held and a 
few of the kinks were straightened out. 
Not all, it is true, but many a sore spot 
was nicely healed by amendments offered 



by the committee on the floor. House 
debate was soon over and the bill was sent 
to the Senate, where subcommittees of 
the Senate Finance Committee are now 
conducting hearings. There work will be 
finished some time in July, after which 
the full committee will "go into a huddle" 
and decide upon its policy. 

There is. of course, some "log-rolling" 
and some "trading," but as long as men 
are human beings, this may always be 
expected while any legislation is being 
considered. But, all in all. the Smoot- 
Hawley bill will go down in history as 
having received the best attention of the 
best men in American public life. 

Time was when "free trade" was an 
argument to conjure with, in tariff de- 
bate, but with the South becoming indus- 
trialized, and needing tariff protection of 
its own, the "free trade" adherents of 
both the Senate and the House are today 
almost negligible in numbers. Every 
southern state is seeking tariff protection 
for some of its industries and their pleas 
are receiving the same impartial scrutiny 
as the claims of the Republican North 
and West. Nevertheless, many a con- 
gressman who secretly implored the Ways 
and Means Committee to raise the tariff 
on something grown back home, voted 
against the bill in the House and many a 
Senator in the same predicament will do 
the same when the vote is cast this fall 
in the Senate. 

But such is the way of ,\nierican 
politics.

Salvaging Waste Fruit 



[ continued from page 2! ] 



Profitable uses for the peach and apri- 
cot shells have also been developed. At 
San Jose you will find the largest fruit 
by-product manufacturing plant in the 
United States. There thousands of tons 
of shells are put through a giant retort 
which is heated up to 700 - , The power- 
ful heat reduces the peach and apricot 
shell into finely grained charcoal. In the 
yard of the Pacific By-Products Com- 
pany you will see mountains of charcoal, 
which are placed into sacks and sold in 
the local market as a chicken feed, for 
filtration purposes, and also for use in 
case hardening of metal. 

The Pacific By-Products Company was 
the pioneer in the salvaging of fruit 
waste. During the war it derived revenue 
by capitalizing the demand for the pit 
by gas mask factories. It is a big plant, 
several blocks square, equipped with the 
latest type of machinery to manufacture 
charcoal from the pit shells for peace 
time uses. 

"We have invested a great deal of 
money in this plant," said Louis A. 
Clarke, its manager, "because we had 
faith in the future development of the 
fruit by-product industry. Our produc- 
tion of charcoal is better than the stand- 
ard established by the Government. 

"The utilization of waste is as impor- 
tant to the fruit grower as it is in indus- 



try. We have the example of Henry Ford 
who found a way to utilize the lumber 
waste in his car body shops. He con- 
verted the waste into charcoal and 
thereby saved the $25,000 that it cost 
him each month to cart the waste lumber 
lo a dumping ground. We not only utilize 
the fruit waste into profitable channels, 
but spare the grower the cost of convey- 
ing the waste to a dumping place." 

The shell waste salvaged at the Pacific 
By-Products Company produces not only 
charcoal, but a good amount of methol 
alcohol and acetic acid. It was something 
of a problem for the research staff to ob- 
tain these by-products. They devised a 
retort which is heated externally, so while 
the shells are converted into charcoal, the 
residue of alcohol and acetic acid are 
run off. 

More recently the research men found 
another valuable by-product from the pit 
shells — wood oil. This wood oil is said 
to possess valuable weed destroying 
qualities. However, the product is now 
in the experimental stage, and as soon 
as it has been perfected will be placed 
on the market. 

Among the first to capitalize the in- 
creasing demand for apricot pits was the 
California Prune and Apricot Growers 
Association. It was a job for a skillful

these savings, coast manufacturers save 
the freight charges on the 65 "^ shrinkage 
in weight of greased wool after scouring. 

At the present time there are but three 
woolen mills in the state, located at Santa 
Ana. Long Beach, and Eureka, the latter 
being an outstanding success, and dis- 
tributing its product throughout the Na- 
tion. The Eureka Woolen Mills produces 
700.000 yards of woven and finished 
goods valued at approximately a million 
dollars each year. This firm employs 100 
people on an annual payroll of one- 
quarter million dollars, in the production 
of suitings, overcoat cloth for men's and 
boy's clothing, clothings and flannels for 
women's wear, shirting flannels and heavy 
weight materials for the manufacture of 
all grades of wool shirts, sport goods and 
blankets. The reputation of the excellent 
quality of California wool makes possible 
the distribution of this company's prod- 
ucts throughout the country both to the 
wholesale trade in the case of finished 
products and to the manufacturing trade. 

■\s an illustration of the possibility for 
local mills to meet eastern competition 
in the western market, it is interesting to 
note that the Eureka mill has for five 
years secured the contract for making the 
blankets used in state institutions despite 
strong competition from the East. This 
company has just signed a contract to 
make 14,000 of these blankets for the 
state, which is the largest contract of its 
kind ever lei to a mill west of the Missis- 
sippi. 

In addition to the Eureka plant, several 
successful concerns operate in Oregon 
producing similar lines as well as men's 
suits and both men's and women's top 
coats. At the present time none of the Pa- 
cific Coast factories are making worsteds. 

HOW SAN FRANCISCO CAN 
DEVELOP THE INDUSTRY 

Local and national woolen dealers deem 
it inadvi.sable to attempt the develop- 
ment of any additional woolen mills in 
the country at the present lime because 
of present national market and economic 
conditions. However they arc of the 
o|)inion that a great deal of profitable 
work can be done to make this a greater 
wool center and be ready when the op- 
portunity for woolen mills is ripe. 

In ail(iilion to the work now being done 
by the Wool Trade Associalion, local 
business men might assist in increasing 
the amount of wool scoured here which 
would result in increased payrolls. This 
is highly possible, even though many 
manufacturers prefer to do their own 
cleaning, for the demand for dean wool 
usually exceed the supply. 

Warehousing and display facililies can 
well be improved. This would result in 
m.iking this a greater wool market, in 
iidililioii 1(1 h.indling a greater amount of 



coast wool this market also has an op- 
portunity to handle a greater amount of 
imported wool from China and Australia. 
A greater amount of the Chinese wool 
which is used for carpet making could be 
brought here and a large amount of the 
Australian wool might be diverted here 
from England, resulting in a consequent 
increase in the sale of California products 
to that country. 

The manufacture of carpets is another 
industry which might be fostered to in- 
crease local demands and build a woolen 
market here. 

Because of the economic conditions 
referred to, one outstanding local author- 
ity believes that the time is inopportune 
to enter the so-called style form of manu-

"grape vine twirls" in those days. In- 
stead were the spirited Fandango, the 
graceful Jota, the Cachucha and Man- 
zanillo with now and then a Valsa. When 
a young caballero wished to specially 
signify his devotion to a certain lady, he 
approached her with an eggshell filled 
with tinsel confetti called a Cascarone; 
this he adroitly broke over her head send- 
ing the released contents in a golden 
shower over her raven hair producing a 
most charming effect. This mode of in- 
vitation was esteemed a great compli- 
ment. 

It is a far cry from pastoral times 
such as these to our sordidly practical 
twentieth century, but young blood ever 
runs hot and our modern cowboys and 
cowgirls emulate and even surpass their 
forbears in those old stirring pastimes and 
risk life and limb for the applause of the 
crowds and ascendency over possible 
rivals. 

The stock raisers of Monterey County 
determined to perpetuate the old customs 
ere the march of modernism and the ad- 
vent of the motor had made them only a 
memory, and so every year during July a 
horde of riders, American, Mexican and 
Indian drift from their home ranches and 
enliven the streets of Salinas with their 
bright garb and lively cayuses, the girls in 
leather skirt of chaps, the men in all the 
regalia of the holiday making cowhand. 

Poor indeed is the rider who does not 
boast a handsome saddle of carved 
Spanish leather and silver mounted 
bridle; many of the outfits seen here dur- 
ing the celebration were once owned by 
the old Spanish Dons themselves and 
with their heavy silver adornments cost 
the original owner $400 to $500. 

The fame of this splendidly spectacular 
entertainment and the attractive prizes 
offered act as a loadstone wherever riders 
gather and now the finest horsemen of all 
the West gather at Salinas to display their 
prowess and thrill the crowds that daily 
marvel at their reckless daring. The 
California Rodeo, which will commence 
at 2 o'clock each afternoon of the 17th, 
18th, IQth. 20th, and 21st of July this 
year, depicts every feature of the old 
wild life on the ranges, reproduced in 
most alluring fashion in a natural setting 
unsurpassed for scenic loveliness beneath 
the shadow of the towering El Gabilan 
range. 

Here the most notorious outlaw 
bronchos are ridden with varying suc- 
cess; wild steers roped and bull-dogged; 
scores of wild horses from the hills of 
Nevada and Montana are saddled and 
mounted for the first time; their vicious 
plunging and striking bringing many a 
gasp from the spectators; bull riding with 
its roars of laughter despite its strenuous- 
ness and danger; relay, pony, cowboy, 
cowgirl, stake, hurdle, chariot and chuck 
wagon races; trick riding; potato and 
balloon races and a world of other inter- 
esting features go to make up the daily 
program. 



Each morning is ushered in by the 
strains of one or more of the fine bands 
stationed here and there along the gaily 
decorated streets. At one o'clock sharp 
commences the parade of mounted cow- 
boys and girls almost a mile in length and 
usually accompanied by a cavalry escort 
from the Presidio of historic Monterey; 
the parade proceeds directly to the rodeo 
grounds where the municipality of Salinas 
has just completed the erection of a 
modern grandstand with a seating capac- 
ity of 11,500 and 272 private boxes ac- 
commodating six persons each thus se- 
curing ample seating space for our guests 
and so arranged that each event takes 
place in full view of all spectators. 



Adequate parking space within the 
grounds has been provided for all auto- 
mobiles. 

Saturday evening, July 20th, will be 
devoted to the "Colmado del Rodeo." 
the culminating feature of the celebra- 
tion, an outdoor event unique in its 
elaborateness and the opulent gorgeous- 
ness of the Oriental display which is one 
of its most striking features. 

In conclusion, if you are a lover of the 
great outdoors and its more adventurous 
forms of manly sport you will find full 
measure of satisfaction at the California 
Rodeo at Salinas, California, July 17 to 
21 inclusive.

exceedingly close botanical relation of 
the peach, apricot, and prune seeds to 
those of the almond as well as the similar- 
ity of composition, there is seemingly no 
reason why the kernels of these three 
fruits should not demand attention with 
reference to their possible commercial 
value." 

First attempts to manufacture almond 
oils locally were not successful. Aside 
from the fact that the oil could be pro- 
duced at less cost in the European plants, 
the Santa Clara pioneers had not as yet 
hit on the best methods of producing 
sweet almond oil. The California Prune 
and Apricot Growers did get a salad oil 
product, but it was shortlived on the 
market, being unpalatable for the Ameri- 
can table. The growers association was 
busy marketing the prune and apricot 
crops, and at the first opportunity dis- 
posed of its plant and chemist to an 
enterprising Los Gatos businessman by 
the name of Sewell S. Brown. 

Brown worried about the problem of 
extracting sweet almond oil, until one day 
his chemist burst in on him, wild-eyed 
with joy. Out on the golf links the idea 
had come to him, a really workable 
formula. Soon after the chemist died, 
and to this day the secret formula re- 
mains locked in a safe at Brown's nut- 
cracking plant near Los Gatos. 

E.xtracting the kernels is the first 
operation. The apricot pits are run 
through a series of pressure rollers which 
break the shells without harming the 
kernels. Peach pits are harder to crack, 
and their yield is less than apricot pits. 
A peach pit will yield no more than 5% 
kernel, while a "cot" pit will produce as 
much as 22'^c kernel, and even more. 

The 10,000 tons of apricot pits avail- 
able each harvesting season will yield 
2300 tons of kernels. When jiresscd. 
these will produce Uc.'^OO barrels of 
almond oil. figured at a production of 
5.i barrels to the ton of kernels. The 
2300 tons of kernels will command a 
market price of $o44,000. 

After the cracking operations, the 
shells are shipped to charcoal converting 
plants, while the kernels are put in sacks 
fur expert to Germany and other Eu- 
ropean countries, there to be pressed for 
oil. The broken kernels are pressed for 
oil at Mr. Brown's plant. These are 
ground up. and then passetl through a 
press, from which sweet almond oil re- 
sults. The press cake, from which the 
fixed oil had been extracted, is again 
treated for bitter almond oil. Important 
by-products are oils used for confection- 
cry lla\driiig. while a good part of the 
oil is utilized by cosmetic manufacturers. 
Much of the macaroon paste now used 
by .American bakers is made from apricot 
kernels. In making the paste, the kernels 
arc first blanched in hot water, so that 
tin- peeling is automatically removed. 
The material is then ground, and prussic 
acid removed. 

After the bitter almond has been re- 
moved, the press cake is valueless for 
further |)roduclion jwrpo.ses, and can 
then be disposi'd of as a stock feed. Tests 
have shown that such feed is rich in 
protein and carbohydrates.

Brown has discovered another valuable 
use of the press cake for fertilization 
purposes. It is particularly \aluable to 
induce green growth on golf courses. 
Chemical analysis of the press cake shows 
the following composition: nitrogen, 
phosphoric acid and potash. 

As matters stand, only 100 tons of 
kernels are now being converted into oils 
and by-products in California plants. 
The by-product manufacturers maintain 
that they cannot compete with European 
cheap labor, but with readjustment of the 
tariff schedule offering them better pro- 
tection they hope that some day the in- 
dustry will take on more significance. 

There are many other possibilities to 
utilize the waste products of the Cali- 
fornia fruit orchard. Probably the most 
interesting is that each harvesting season 
the cherry growers of California export 
hundreds of tons of dried cherry stems to 
France. An export concern in San Fran- 
cisco has made a speciality of supplying 
this raw material to European buyers. 
Several years ago the demand for the 
dried stems was so great that the foreign 
buyers were willing to pay ten to twelve 
cents a pound, and they would take all 
they could get. More recently, however, 
prices have dropped to about four to six 
cents, so that many cherry growers do not 
find it economical to supply the market. 
It is not much trouble to obtain the 
stems, for a good part of the cherry crop 
is being canned, and the stems removed 
in the canning process. Drying of the 
stems and carting them off to the steam- 
ship for export is costly. 

Growers and export agents are not 
clear in their minds as to what products 
and processes have created a market for 
such a humble waste product. Evidently 
the foreign buyers have their own secret 
processes that they wish to shield from 
the world. From one authoritative source 
we learn that the dried cherry stems are 
sought after by the purveyors of choice 
liqueurs. The cherry stem is said to 
possess rare scenting qualities. Imagine 
then, the Parisian Boulevardier at his 
favorite bottle, commenting on the won- 
derful aroma induced by the California- 
grown cherries ! 

A profitable market has already been 
established for the still more humble 
grape stem, which is productive of a 
number of valuable commercial articles. 
A valuable product of the grape stem is 
cream of tartar. This is obtained by 
grinding up the waste stems and boiling 
them in water. Tannin is another valu- 
able by-product. The University of Cali- 
fornia has conducted tests with raisin 
stems as a stock feed. The waste stuff 
was sought after by the lambs, and con- 
stituted a fattening diet. The Sun-Maid 
Raisin Growers Association is offering a 
standard sheep feed consisting of a mix- 
ture of raisin pulp and stemmer waste. 
The raisin pulp is a by-product from the 
manufacture of raisin syrup — another im- 
portant by-product manufactured by the 
Sun-Maid Raisin Growers — and consists 
of a mixture of dry battery pulp, dry 
seeder waste and stemmer waste. As 
California is one of the leading sheep- 
raising states in the Union, the impor- 



tance of this feed by-product cannot be 
overestimated. 

Other by-products of the grape raisin 
are grape seed oil used in paints. After 
the oil has been extracted from the seed, 
ih: resulting press cake is found valuable 



as a stock feed. Or sugar is extracted 
from the seed and is fermented with 
yeast. After distilling, we have the by- 
product of ethyl alcohol. Many valuable 
soap and paint oils have been extracted

most efficient in their particular line of 
work, such as Acting Chief Brennan, 
Assistant Fire Chief Kearns. Capt. 
Riordan of the Police Department, Fire 
Marshal Kelly, Capt. Trivett of the Fire 
Prevention Bureau, Capt. Sullivan of the 
Underwriters Fire Patrol, and Capt. 
Donohue of the Commercial Fire Des- 
patch. 

Not content with the knowledge of 
local conditions possessed by these 
officials, the committee arranged for at- 
tendance at its meetings of leading fire 
protection engineers whose work has 
taken them all over the United States and 
who are considered as authorities on 
modern methods of fire prevention and 
fire protection. These include Asst. Chief 
Engineer Andrews and Engineer Raines 
and Stange of the National Board of Fire 
Underwriters, Chief Engineer Coon and 
Engineer Douglas of the Pacific Board of 
Fire Underwriters, Mr. Thos. Mc- 
Caughern, Secretary of the San Fran- 
cisco District of the Pacific Board of 
Fire Underwriters, State Fire Marshal 
Jay W. Stevens, and Mr. Clarence Heller, 
Consulting Engineer and active as a com- 
mittee member of the National Fire Pro- 
tection Association. 

Most of these gentlemen have been 
sitting with the Fire Prevention Commit- 
tee of the Junior Chamber of Commerce 
every week for the past year, and con- 
sequently it is evident that the conclu- 
sions reached by the committee are the 
result not only of careful study, but repre- 
sent generally the combined judgment of 
the entire group. 

When the Fire Prevention Committee 
of the Junior Chamber of Commerce was 
organized in February, 1Q2S, it found the 
city Fire Prevention Bureau here to con- 
sist of only one actual inspector who was 
harilly able to keep up with the com- 
plaints received from various sources. 
Through the efforts of this committee, 
there are now available to the Bureau 
seventeen men, and including the Fire 
Marshal and his assistant, we have a total 
of nineteen men engaged e.xclusively in 
fire prevention work. In Seattle the 
Bureau has thirty men and in Los Angeles 
fifty-four. Other Pacific Coast cities carry 
on the work in the same general propor- 
tion as Seattle and Los Angeles and an 
analysis of their fire records revealed that 
the larger the fire prevention bureau in 
pro[)ortion to the population, the lower 
the per capita number of fires per year. 
It is probably unnecessary to add that 
San Francisco has the greatest number 
of fires per cai)ita of the Pacific Coast 
cities, and also heads the list of ihe larger 
cities of the United Slates. At the present 
lime we average twenty fire alarms per 
d.iy and for the fiscal year which termin- 
aled nil June ,iO, 777-1 alarms were record- 
iil. which is an increase of (ill over ihc 
previous year. 

The I'ire Prevent inn ("mnniittce of I he 
Junior Chamber of Cniiimerce has gone 
un record as recommending the following 
items to the Fire Commissioners: 



1. Quick raising S5-foot aerial ladders 
to be installed in the downtown districts. 
These are standard equipment in most 
cities and are valuable for rescue work. 
They can be erected quickly and moved 
about very rapidly: whereas at present 
our largest ladders are 65 feet and raised 
by hand, a slow process and requiring a 
minimum of si.x men.

THE AROUND PACIFIC CRUISE 

On September 21 the Matson Line 
flagship Malolo will sail from San Fran- 
cisco on the most novel and interesting 
cruise ever offered to the business men 
of the United States, and their families. 

Our neighbors across the Pacific are 
displaying a keen interest in this enter- 
prise, looking forward to the opportunity 
of establishing closer and more intimate 
acquaintance with those who are dele- 
gated with the mission of goodwill and 
friendship. 

It has been pointed out that while the 
average visitor to the Orient and the 
Antipodes is given the opportunity to ob- 
serve quaint customs, to see art treasures 
and the characteristic architecture of the 
countries, the fact remains that to many 
he is "just a tourist passing through," 
and he does not have the privilege of be- 
coming more intimately familiar with the 
many things which make life in the coun- 
tries beyond the Pacific so different from 
our own. 

Those fortunate travelers who are 
members of the Malolo Cruise, however, 
may look forward to the unique privilege 
of meeting with the principal business 
men and social leaders of the countries 
visited. They will be given the opportun- 
ity to observe business methods, and to 
study the homelife of these people. 

All this will give cruise members the 
advantage not only of participating in 
three months of delightful social life 
among the cultured and prominent peo- 
ple of the countries to be visited, but also 
will enable them to gain the benefit of 
true insight into the art, literature, archi- 
tecture, religions and government of the 
peoples which by distant observation 
seem so strange to us. 



NEW REGULATIONS 

IN COASTAL TRADE OF 

FRENCH INDOCHINA 

The French flag monopoly which has 
for many years existed in the coastwise 
trade of the French colonies has recently 
been extended to French Indochina, with 
the exception of the territory of Koaung 
Tcheou Wan. However, the ships of for- 
eign nations will still be able to carry 
passengers or freight between two ports 
of the Colony if the distance between 
these ports is more than 550 miles, rivers 
not included. The Governor General 
will have power to grant privileges mak- 
ing exceptions to the regulations, these 
privileges to extend for one year only, 
with the possibility of renewal. 



ECUADOR TRADE FAIR 

The Sixth International Trade Fair in 
Quito, the capital of Ecuador, will be held 
from the 10th to the ISth of May, 1Q30. 
This fair, which has been held annually 
since 1925, has attained outstanding suc- 
cess in previous years, largely due to the 
interest displayed by the various coun- 
tries trading with Ecuador, including the 
United States. Exhibits from foreign 
houses with interests in Ecuador are again 
solicited for the Sixth International 
Trade Fair.

from the raisin seed. Much of the seed 
cake, after oil has been extracted, can 
be used for fuel purposes. 

These are only few of the by-products 
of California's big grape industry. But 
only a start has been made. The Fruit 
Products Laboratory of the University of 
California is constantly experimenting 
with new grape products, and further 



[ continued from page 29 ] 

work along this line is being sponsored 
by the California Vineyardists Associa- 
tion at its well equipped laboratory in 
Lodi. No less than twenty-eight grape 
products have been produced, among 
which are: paper from grape cuttings: 
pure grape colors and dyes; dry ice: 
p;ctin; powdered grape; fertilizer, and 
many others. 




The world 

takes for granted 

many things it values most 



Fortunate it is that 
things of the greatest 
value and usefulness do 
not cost in proportion 
to that value. For exam- 
ple, the Telephone. 

What would its cost 
be, if charged for in 
ratio to its usefulness — 
this convenient instru- 
ment that broadens your 
social contacts, sum- 
mons the doctor, opens 
your door to business 
profits, or lets you hear 
the voice of a loved one 
far away? 

If no telephone had 
ever been seen in this 
city, and such a service 
were suddenly created, 



the well-to-do would 
willingly pay $50, $100 
or even $500 a month to 
have it in their homes. 
A single successful 
business deal would pay 
its cost for weeks. A 
single life saved thru 
prompt telephone com- 
munication would jus- 
tify such outlay forever. 

Yet — the telephone is 
available to everyone, 
and its cost is only a few 
cents a day. 

And there are more 
telephones being in- 
stalled every day, there- 
by making your own 
telephone even more 
useful. 



The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company 



A Lodi chemist recently made the 
startling discovery that grape juice could 
be made by an electric process. It was 
quite by accident that the scientist, pass- 
ing a tablespoonful of bouillon to his 
mouth caused an electric discharge to pass 
through his head. It w-as harmless, but 
set his mind working. What happened 
was this: when he touched the silver 
spoon against his gold tooth, the electric 
discharge was conducted through the 
liquid. He had a sour taste in his mouth. 
The trained chemist immediately con- 
cluded that the electric discharge, in kill- 
ing the bacteria, caused the sour taste. 

He hurried to his laboratory in Lodi. 
For many weeks he busied himself with 
experiments, and finally devised an in- 
strument that would kill bacteria by elec- 
tricity, thus converting the grapes into 
grape juice, without necessarily resorting 
to .flavor-destroying sterilization heat. 
Ordinarily, grape juice is sterilized by 
heat before it is bottled for the market. 
This kills the germs but also takes away 
the original wine flavor. But by passing 
the liquid through a series of glass lubes, 
which are lined with gold, silver and 
copper rings, electric discharges kill the 
germs and have no effect on the wine 
flavor. 

The process is as simple as the dis- 
covery, and now a San Francisco com- 
pany is beginning to market the clectro- 
Ihysis grape juice on a national scale, 
and experiments are being conducted to 
apply the same process to other fruit 
juices.

grape by-products corporation, in which 
the eight leading California grape prod- 
ucts concerns are to participate. These 
eight concerns will not only pool their 
financial resources, but also their physi- 
cal equipment and sales organizations. 
The operation of this corporation it is 
hoped will help to relieve the problem of 
surplus grape crops that have been har- 
rowing the grape growers of California. 

Apples are being utilized in the form 
of many by-products. The production of 
vinegar is an important industry, utilizing 
thousands of tons of apple peelings and 
cores. At present the price of vinegar is 
low. but as soon as prices become stab- 
ilized this should become a very profit- 
able business. 

■'The extraction of pectin from apple 
peelings," the writer was informed by a 
technical expert, "is a continuously grow- 
ing industry. The operations are more or 
less secret as the companies engaged in 
the manufacture of pectin have developed 
their own processes, which they do not 
divulge. As you know pectin is that in- 
gredient of the jelly which causes it to 
jell or harden. Many fruits such as 
strawberries, raspberries, do not contain 
enough pectin to allow them to jell prop- 
erly. This can be added by the manufac- 
turer of the jelly and produce a clear 
sparkling jelly of the proper consistency. 

"At the present time a large quantity 
of skins and trimmings, as well as the 
pits from peaches, are ground up and 
thrown away in the cannery. All of this 
material has some value for the produc- 
tion of by-products but the canners them- 
selves are not interested at the present 
time in such work although in the course 
of time it is quite likely that a great deal 
of such material can be utihzed to ad- 
vantage as a side line. The by-products 
from the canning of fish, namely fish oil 
and fish meal are actually far more profit- 
able in California than the canning of 
sardines from which the by-products are 
derived. Such a condition may well exist 
in connection with the fruit industry as 
processes are developed for the manu- 
facture of motor fuel, etc., from the dis- 
tillation of the alcohol, etc., which could 
be derived from the waste matter now 
discarded in our canneries."

ponding week of 1928, according to the 
weekly statement of the Department of 
Commerce. Activity in steel plants, 
while lower than during the previous 
week, showed a considerably higher rate 
of operation than for the same week of 
last year. The output of bituminous coal 
likewise declined from the preceding 
week but was greater than a year ago. 
The production of crude petroleum for 
the latest reported week showed gains 
over both prior periods. 

The general level of wholesale prices 
showed a further fractional gain over the 
preceding week and was slightly lower 
than a year ago. Iron and steel prices 
continued to decline, although exceeding 
last year's level. Prices for wheat and for 
copper showed no change from the pre- 
vious week. Loans and discounts of the 
Federal reserve banks were slightly larger 
than during either the previous week or 
the corresponding week of 1028. Interest 
rates on both time and call loans ad- 
vanced sharply from last week's average 
and were substantially greater than a 
year ago. 



SPECIAL NOTICE 

The Foreign Trade Department has

at Zagreb has been permitted to import 
dry, salted and raw hides from other 
European countries and from overseas, 
through the two veterinary stations of 
Jesenice and Rakek. Shipments so made 
must be accompanied by documents of 
health and origin. This opens a new trade 
area to exporters of hides.

"Market Every Business Day" 



Francisco. Practically all of these plants 
are purchasing their yarn from eastern 
mills. Much of this yarn is already dyed 
but in the past few years three or four 
small firms have commenced dyeing yarns 
and fabrics for the local knit goods and 
women's wear trades. In this line there 
is an opportunity for two kinds of plants, 
namely, the production of finished 
"tops" or combed and carded wool ready 
for spinning and yarn spinning. With the 
cooperation of the Chamber's Domestic 
Trade Bureau to persuade local factories 
to use this product and with local dye 
plants available, properly managed and 
financed plants producing these articles 
should succeed. 

The further development of the kinds 
of men's and women's wear industries 
should create a greater demand for 
woven goods. The Domestic Trade Bu- 
reau is now working with local retailers to 
sell a greater amount of local-made goods. 
One local men's clothing establishment is 
producing over 350 suits per week, but 
one factory does not make a market. 
Several firms handle stocks of eastern- 
made goods but at the present time there 
is not a sufiicient variety to cause local 
and out of town buyers to do the bulk of 
their buying here. Through the develop- 
ment of a greater market here both 
through local manufacturers and eastern 
branches, the possibility of securing 
branch factories of outstanding eastern 
men's wear firms should be greater. 

Careful planning along such lines, con- 
structive building of this market, the 
creation of San Francisco as an even 
greater style center than at present, and 
a whole hearted desire on the part of 
business men, bankers, and financiers 
should result in placing San Francisco 
back where it was fifty years ago as one 
of the great wool markets of the world. 
With such developments we may then ex- 
pect and should have huge weaving mills 
producing new .styles and fabrics even 
as we have created sport styles, architec- 
ture, etc.. peculiarly fitted for western 
climatic conditions and needs.

MUSIC 

[ continued from page IS ] 

the unique character and beauty of this 
peninsula theatre setting. Extensive study 
and experiment has resulted in the per- 
fection of plans for a structure which, 
while furnishing shelter and shade for the 
members of the orchestra, gives a ma.xi- 
mum sounding board background, and, 
at the same time, avoids any intruding 
supports at the front of the stage to ob- 
struct in any way the vision of the 
audience. 

Bernardino Molinari, who last year 
made his Pacific Coast debut in the 
Woodland Theatre and who conducted the 
first two concerts this year, says "what 
an enchanting place in which to conduct 
a concert ! I wish I might be in the audi- 
ence and thus have the privilege of listen- 
ing to a program surrounded by the 
natural beauty of the outdoors." 

California has the unique privilege of 
possessing within the state's limits three 
of the four summer concert series in the 
United States. The New York stadium 
concerts complete the quartet. The San 
Francisco Summer Symphony Associ- 
ation has indoor concerts while the Wood- 
land Theatre in Hillsborough and the 
Hollywood Bowl in Los ,\ngeles offer the 
open air lovers their opportunity. 

The beautiful surroundings in the 
Woodland Theatre are unsurpassed by 
any in this country. Here is a place of 
culture where artistic merit and congenial 
companionship find expression. These 
open air concerts have brought nation- 
wide fame to the community by focusing 
the attention of lovers of music in all 
parts of the country on this section of 
California. The Woodland Theatre offers 
a setting for such concerts that is un- 
rivaled in the world. In it art and nature 
combine to produce music that inspires 
the highest ideals. 

The peninsula series of concerts this 
year boasts the greatest number of guest 
conductors of any outdoor series of con- 
certs in California. There are five con- 
ductors for the scries of eight concerts 
at the Woodland Theatre and but three 
for the entire series of ^2 concerts to be 
given in the Hollywood Bowl. 

Bernardino Molinari. Alfred Hertz, 
Eugene Coossens, Ernest Bloch, and 
liruno Walter are the world famous guest 
conductors who have been engaged this 
year to direct the concerts at the |)enin- 
sula theatre. The fact that the concerts 
are given on Sunday afternoons makes il 
possible for inanv music lovers to at lend 
who otherwise might be ilenied the pleas- 
ure of hearing the San Francisco Svm- 
phony Orchestra and the enjoyment of 
the concerts is further enhanced by the 
restful and delightful natural siirroiind- 
ings of the Hillsborough amphitheatre. 

The Woodland Theatre is localed ad- 
jacent to (he Hillsborough District 
School, jusi ofl the Ivl Camino Real High- 
way west of .San Mateo, For those coni- 
ing from the east bay and the interior of 
California the San Erancisco Hay Toll 
Bridge, the longest highway bridge in 
the world, which extends from Havward 



to San Mateo, offers a beautiful drive and 
convenient and easy access to the con- 
certs. The theatre is a fifteen minutes' 
drive from the San Mateo terminus of 
the bridge. 

The spotlight is turned on Hills- 
borough. San Mateo and Burlingame 
every summer due to the Sunday after- 
noon "open-air" concerts. Drive down 
the peninsula and take advantage of this 
wonderful opportunity to hear the finest 
music in Nature's natural setting. No- 
where else in America is there offered a 
series comparable to these given in the 
natural setting and sylvan surroundings 
of the Woodland Theatre.

tions in working out a plan to secure 
these extensions. 

3. All fire company officers should be 
required to familiarize themselves with 
the buildings in their respective districts. 
This is being done to a very limited ex- 
tent now. 

4. A fire college similar to that of other 
cities should be instituted as soon as pos- 
sible, supplementing the drill tower work. 
In this way the members of the depart- 
ment itself can gain a reputation for ef- 
ficiency and up-to-date methods. 

5. A more adequate response of fire 
apparatus should be provided for tele- 
phoned alarms indicating fires in build- 
ings. At the present time only the ap- 
paratus of the nearest fire station is dis- 
patched to a telephoned alarm; whereas 
an alarm from a box brings as many as 
five engine companies, two ladder com- 
panies, and other apparatus. It is stand- 
ard practice in many other cities to treat 
every alarm for a fire in a building alike, 
irrespective of the method of transmit- 
ting it. 

6. The ordinance under which the Fire 
Prevention Bureau operates, should be 
strengthened, as it is very incomplete and 
inadequate. 

7. Plans should be started earl)' for a 
proper observance of fire prevention 
week. 

S. The various fire prevention activi- 
ties of the fire department should be 
co-ordinated under one head and a real 
effort made to accomplish a reduction in 
fires in San Francisco by the department 
as a whole. 

0. A study should be made of the water 
front so that practical suggestions may 
be submitted to the proper authorities. 

10, \w immediate readjustment in the 
present assignment .system. The assign- 
ment system is designed to automatically 
provide adequate response to fire alarms, 
even after a number of previous alarms 
have been answered. 

During Its year and a half of existence, 
the Fire Prevention Committee of the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce, has de- 
veloped some startling facts, paramount 
of which is the fact that San Francisco is 
spending three and one-half million dol- 
lars a year to extinguish fires and onlv 
,'f,V=;,000 to prevent them. 

.\ very importan' factor (o bear in 
mind al all limes is that the public must 
be sold on I he idea of Fire Prevention and 
Ihis committee will assist Ihc Fire Pre- 
vent ion Bureau in every possible manner 
lo spread the gospel of lire prevention. 

If ihe fire pre\ention work is carried 
on effectively, this commillee believes 
Ihal wilhiri three years ihe luimber of 
lircs will be rctluced by one-half and that 
deaths by fire, which at the present time 
average ten to fifteen a year, will be sub- 
si ant iailv reduced.

liiiii which is to be held

■ Association and Sid Ep- 
"11, well known locally, will

I committee. The floor plan 
tlie show is, in the main, 
liar to last year's. The 
Ihs will also be of the same

beauty of the 1928 show which, 
it is expected, will be sur-

Your Chamber of Commerce Attracted 



This New Firm to San Francisco 

The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce has attracted another industry to San Francisco. 
It attracts many new industries to San Francisco that San Franciscans know nothing 

" "occasionaUy there is one that establishes a definite record, such as the following. It Is a 
paragraph from a lett»r addressed to Aimer M. Newhall, president of your Chamber of 
Commerce, by O. H. Fithian, president of the Cradduck Terry Company of Oregon: 

I appreciate very much the encouragement you sent forth in your letter. » • • • I might 
add at this time that it was largely through the constant contact with your Chamber that we 
were finally decided to locate in San Francisco. Each week you had something to say relative 
to the advantages of your location as a market, and. to be frank with you. we hadn t decided 

definitely whether we would go to San Francisco or to . Each time you wrote 

us we gave it a little thought, and decided that we would cast our lot with you— and we now 
feel that we will have no occasion to regret it. 

We are going to be located at 617-619 Mission Street. 
Very truly yours, 

CRADDUCK TERRY COMPANY OF OREGON, 

(Signed) By O. H. FITHIAJJ, President

SAN FRANCISCO, BRUSH MANUFACTURING CENTER 
OF THE PACIFIC COAST 

By CAPEN A. FLEMING 

Manager Industrial Dept. San Francisco C. oj C. 



Ki AN FRANCISCO is the home of the oldest 
^ and largest brush factory west of Chi- 
^ cago. This plant makes a general line of 
J' brushes, including paint and varnish 
brushes, while the four other brush factories 
make all types of brushes excepting paint 
brushes. 

The street sweeper's broom, the push broom 
type used by janitors, ceiling cleaning brushes, 
counter dusters, circular brushes used on rotary 
jcrub machines, kalsomine, shipping stencil, 
bill poster and window washing brushes are but 
a few of the many kinds of brushes made here, 
where considerably over half of the Pacific Coast 
brush output is produced. 

The value of San Francisco's location as a 
strategic point for manufacturers distribution is 
demonstrated by the fact that local brush fac- 
tories are distributing their products to the 
25,000,000 people west of the Mississippi River, 
as well as exporting to Central America and the 
transpacific countries. 

The steps in the manufacture of a brush are 
interesting, and they vary according to the type 
being made. Some of the coarser scrubbing 
brushes are known as "wire drawn," that 
lioles are bored in the brush block, the upper 
portion of the hole being smaller in circumfer- 
ence than the lower in order that the wire, but 



not the fiber, may be drawn through. The wisp 
of fiber which is to be set in one of the holes of 
the brush block is bent in the middle and In- 
serted in a loop of wire which Is then drawn 
tightly into one of the many holes and fastened. 
As the holes are filled up, the fiber is trimmed 
and the brush is completed. In another kind, 
holes of the brush block are filled with fiber by a 
machine which drives a staple into the hole 
along with the crimped fiber which is thus held 

t. The coarse vegetable fiber for use in heavy 

brushes designed for rough work is called 
basseine. Palmyra, palmetto, whale bone and 
tampico are trade names of fibres each lighter 
weight than the one before it in the order 
named. They come mostly from Mexico. 

Brushes used by painters are for the most 
part made of bristles which come largely from 
Russia and China. The longest and best bristles 
are imported from the coldest climates for the 
same reason that the highest grade of wool is 
produced in the climates where a warm coat is 
essential for the animal. 

In the manufacture of bristle brushes, the 
bristles are boiled in water for several hours and 
then dried in an oven. They are carefully 
weighed for every brush. Similar types have 
exactly the same weight of bristles per brush. 
Each worker performs his own particular opera-

Nearly 300 
Sign Up for 
M alolo Trip 

Good Will Jaunt 
Will Be Greatest 
Launched in West 



ITH the departure of 
the palatial Malolo 
on its Around-the- 
Pacific jaunt still 
sixty days or more in the 
offing, there remain only eight 
more reservations to be made 
to reach the quota of three 
hundred originally set by the 
cruise sponsors. 

On Tuesday of this week 
there were two hundred and 
ninety-two confirmed reserva- 
tions, and the indications are 
that last-minute interest in the 
trip will create a demand for 
tickets far in excess of the ves- 
sel's capacity. 

The Around Pacific Cruise 
will certainly be the most rep- 
resentative of San Francisco's 
business and social life that has 
ever been organized and will 
develop vast trade opportun- 
ties for this community with • 
the many countries which wiU 
be visited. 

The Malolo will leave San 
Francisco September 21 and 
iU return early in December. 
The cruise is under the direc- 
tion of the San Francisco 
Cliamber.

Development 

Reported by the Industrial 
Department 

EXPANSIONS 

M. R. FleiBchman & Com- 
pany, manufacturers of wash 
frocks, nannelettes, and under- 
wear, have leased the first floor, 
mezzanine, and basement of 
the building at 20-22 Fremont 
Street for their stock and show- 
rooms. In addition to the 4000 
square feet of floor space over 
the 8000 square feet In the old 
building, this company has put 
in all steel shelvings. An out- 
standing feature in the new 
showrooms is that electric 
lights are not necessary. The 
display room, which is in the 
front of the store, can be seen 
from the street as the windows 
are practically down to the 
sidewalk and there is no back- 
ing. This light floods the entire 
front section of the store, the 
back and mezzanine being 
lighted by three huge light 
wells in the ceiling. Mr. Charles 
Fleischman stated that this day 
light cut their electric light bill 
from iJOO to 512 a month. He 
also stated that he did not know 
of any other firm here or in the 
East handling this particular 
kind of merchandise with 
showrooms like It. This expan- 
sion and the added territory of 
Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nebras- 
ka, Wyoming, and South Da- 
kota, to be covered in addition 
to the regular territory of Cali- 
fornia, Nevada, Wasliington, 
and Oregon, will care for a 25% 
Increase In business. Manufac- 
turing is carried on In several 
factories In San Francisco and 
Berkeley. 

The importance of San Fran- 
cisco's first industry in value of 
production, paper and printing, 
h emphasized through the re- 
cent expansion of the Field- 
Ernst Envelope Company, 45 
Fremont Street, manufacturers 
of plain and printed envelopes, 
who have found It necessary to 
build a two-story, reinforced, 
concrete modern addition to 
their plant in order to lake core 
of llieir rapidly Increasing 
business. The new building hi- 
cludes l.'l.OOO square feet of 
door space, 0500 square feet to 
a floor. According lo Mr. J. A. 
F.rnsI, partner of the flrni, this 
Milililliin, along with four new 
jniK'liliii'S In the line of equip- 
ment, will lake cure of an up- 
proxlmutu 25% Increase In

Brush Manufacturing 
Pacific Coast Center... 

[continued from page 1] 
tion, but for sake of brevltj' we 
shall consider it as if the com- 
pleted brush were made by one 
workman. After the bristles 
are weighed, tliey are combed 
into position and then are 
formed into the shape of a 
brush without a handle, a plug 
being placed longitudinally 
along the center of the base. 
This regulates the paint flow- 
when the brush is in use. The 
root ends of the bristles are at 
the base of the brush and these, 
while held in the temporary 
metal former, are set base 
down in rubber dissolved in 
gasoline. After this has per- 
meated the butt ends, the 
bristles, still held together by 
the former, are placed base 
down on a hot plate to vul- 
canize the rubber and the butt 
ends of the bristles into one 
solid mass. This is tlien placed 
in an oven and baked, the heat 
evaporating the gasoline and 
leaving vulcanized rubber. The 
assembling of the handle, the 
permanent metal band and the 
brush proper is a hand and 
machine operation.

San Francisco of 
Due Consideration 



BUSINESS IN THE UNITED STATES IS 
MORE HONEST TODAY THAN EVER BEFORE 

—WILLIAM E. HUMPHREY, Federal Trade Commissioner. 



SAN FRANCISCO has real 
friends on the lighter- 
than-air naval investi- 
gating board on a tour 
nf inspection of available sites 
for the naval air base, said 
Rear Admiral William A. Mof- 
f ett and Rear Admiral Joseph M. 
Reeves at a luncheon tendered 
members of the navy board in 
the Commei-cial Club by the 
Junior Chamber, July 20. 

The United States requires on 
the Paciflc Coast a central base 
for its lighter-than-air airships 
and also two permanent emer- | 
igency fields equipped with 
mooring masts, and while the 
navy officers did not say posi- 
tively that San Francisco Bay 
region would be selected as the 
site for any of them, the speak- 
ers intimated that San Fran- 
cisco is the logical spot. 

Twenty-three offers of sites 
have been made the navy de- 
partment, eleven of them in the 
San Francisco Bay region, said 
Admiral MoiTett. Tlie board re- 
viewed all data pertaining to 
I many of the sites and began in- 
specting the sites July 20, and 
continued July 22 and 23. After 
the board returns to Washing- 
ton it will submit its report to 
the Secretary of Navy and that 
official will pass the recommen- 
dation on to Congress. 

Admirals Moflfett and Reeves 
' were loud in tlieir praise of the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce, 
calling special attention to the 
manner in which the junior 
organization members had 
gathered data and placed it be- 
fore the board. President 
Arthur M. Brown and others of 
the Junior Chamber were men- 
tioned by name as having ren- 
dered exceptional service. 

V. M. Moir, chairman of the 
aeronautics committee of the 
Jimior Chamber, presided at 
the luncheon which was held in 
the California room. Moir in- 
troduced each of the 60 guests 
He called upon Admirals Mof- 
fett and Reeves and Congress- 
man Clarence Lea for talks. 
The navy officers called at- 



BUSINESS in the United States is more honest today 
than ever before and this is the best day that ever 
I dawned upon the Nation, declared Hon. William E. 
Humphrey of the Federal Trade Commission in an 
address to members of the Chamber of Commerce and the 
Commercial Club, July 19. 

Commissioner Humphrey was th» luncheon guest of the 
two organizations. Some 400 manufacturers and distributors, 
in addition to ofBcers and directors of the host organizations, 
were present. Vice Pres. L. 0. Head of the Chamber presided. 
The Commissioner expressed his pleasure at being able to 
tell members of the Chamber of Commerce and Commercial 
Club of the work of the Coimnission. 

The piu-pose of the Federal Trade Commission, said the 
Commissioner, is to do away with unfair competition, unfair 
practices in business and fraud. He told of nuinerous in- 
stances where the Commission in cooperation with various 
industries, had brought about changes in business for the 
better and sa\ed Americans millions of dollars. 

"Before the Federal Trade Commission was created, all 
commercial frauds and unfair business deals had to be settled 
in court. Today, these matters are settled by a policy of 
stipulation and'trade practice conferences. When complaint 
is made against a particular firm or firms with the Commis- 
sion, the Commission calls members of the particular industry 
into conference. The complaint is made public. In this way 
attention is centered upon the accused and in order to pro- 
tect the industry those members who are honest draw up 
resolutions and adopt them. Almost in every case the evil 
reported is abated and harmony prevails. When guilty firms 
continue evil practices, then the Commission acts in a drastic 
manner." 

Commissioner Humphrey mentioned several instances 
where the Connnission through the trade practice conference 
system, have saved the buying pubUc vast sums. He con- 
cluded by saying: 

"Business in the United States is more honest than ever 
before. Business has come to the conclusion that honesty is 
the best poUcy and that it pays the biggest dividends. 

"I do not believe that success is a crime, nor poverty is a 
virtue. Failure cannot be exalted if this country is to survive. 
"It is not the poUcy of the Federal Trade Commission to 
harass business. We want to help business and we want to 
protect business against itself. We want to protect honest 
business and protect the people against fraudulent business 
concerns or individuals. Business today is hone,st. I am 
proud of America and I am proud of business in America."

PROBLEMS OF 
U.S. RETAILERS 



tention to the development of 
aviation and warned California 
to be ready for the expansion of 
commercial aviation. They said 
that lighter-than-air aircraft 
would soon be plying on regu- 
lar schedules between Califor- 
nia and the Hawaiian Islands 
and the Orient. 

The officers in reviewing 
their careers in the Navy 
brought out tliat both are fami- 
liar with San Francisco and 
California needs. They stated 
emphatically that they are 
genuine friends of San Fran- 
cisco. 

Representatives of some 20 
San Francisco Bay communi- 
ties attended the luncheon. 



The personnel of the navy 
board is as follows : 

Rear Admiral William A. 
Moffett, U. S. N., senior mem- 
ber, chief of the bureau of 
aeronautics. 

Rear Admiral Joseph M 
Reeves, U. S. N., General Board 

Commander Garland Fulton 
(CO, U. S. N., in charge, lighter 
than air division, bureau of 
aeronautics. 

Lt. Comdr. Charles E. Rosen 
dahl, U. S. N., in charge of 
rigid airship training and ex- 
perimental squadron. 

Lt. Comdr. E. L. Marshall 
(CEO, U. S. N., member and 
recorder; 4th naval district 
Philadelphia, Pa. 



THAT the retailer and the 
jobber will have a very 
definite place in the fu- 
ture business world if 
they will adopt modern busi- 
ness methods was the declara- 
tion of E. D. Borden, manager 
of the Domestic Distribution 
Department of the U. S. Cham- 
ber of Commerce when ad- 
dressing a conference of the 
San Francisco Chamber of 
Commerce Domestic Trade Bu- 
reau in the Commercial Club, 
Monday noon, at which the 
Economics Section of the Com- 
monwealth Club and the In- 
dustrial Committee of the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce 
were special guests, 

"The principal difficulty that 
the retailers experience is not 
so much the competition which 
lie meets from chain stores but 
instead lays right within his 
own organization," Borden 
states. Recent figures relative 
to the cause of retail failures 
revealed the fact that but 3 per 
cent were caused by competi- 
tion. The others were the re- 
sult of incompetence in busi- 
ness management or lack of 
adequate capital. 

Borden exploded the fallacy 
that chain stores can do busi- 
ness cheaper than a properly 
managed independent when he 
drew attention to the fact that 
the chain must operate a ware- 
house and employ supervisors 
which is directly comparable to 
the wholesale house and its 
salesmen. The only saving is 
the competition with otlier 
wholesalers. This problem is 
being solved by the so called 
"voluntary" chains in which 
.'iS.OOO independent retailers of 
the country are now doing all 
of their buying from one house 
as compared with the 65,000 
chain stores which are buying 
through their warehouse. 

The solution for the retailer's 
problem in competing with the 
chain lies in the fact that the 
jobber, wholesaler and retailers 
must see that they have a com- 
mon interest and the wholesale 
house must interest itself in 
giving the retailer a better 
knowledge of merchandising 
methods, Borden stated.

NEW INDUSTRIES 

Western Fishing Rod Com- 
pany, a new manufacturing 
and jobbing concern, have re- 
cently leased 4000 square feet 
of floor space on the third floor 
of the building at 95 Minna 
Street. This concern, the first 
fishing rod factory to be estab- 
lished on the Pacific Coast, im- 
ports bamboo direct from 
China with which to make 
their fishing rods. Mr. W. A. 
Clark, formerly president of 
the Baylis Fishing Rod Com- 
pany, West Haven, Connecticut, 
and Mr. E. R. Kauffman, form- 
erly editor and publisher of the 
Pacific Sportsman Magazine 
San Francisco, partners of thi 
lirm, have been in close con 
tact with manufacturing am 
jobbing for a number of year 
and chose San Francisco as the 
logical city for their headquar 
ters in which to manufactur 
lishing rods especially designe( 
to meet the requirements of the 
Pacific Coast. This new con- 
cern employs five people at the 
present time. Jobbing i 
ried on in the entire United 
States and Hawaii. 

The Soap Products Corpora- 
tion, with headquarters in Chi- 
cago, Illinois, have opened a 
branch at 631 Second Street, 
San Francisco to serve the state 
of California and the Orient. 
R. C. Beckett, vice president, 
will make San Francisco his 
headquarters, and will direct 
the sales in this territory from 
San Francisco. According to 
Mr. Beckett, this company 
makes soap flakes from corn 
oil by a patented process which 
makes possible the saponifica- 
tion of the oil much more 
rapidly than is the case with 
other methods.

San Francisco and Oakland 
Chambers of Commerce Win 
Vital Point in Washington 



THE San Francisco-Oakland Metropolitan Area, 
consisting of portions of the nine counties on 
the San Francisco Bay, is an assureii fact, 
according to information received by the San 
Francisco and Oakland Chambers of Commerce from 
Director of Census William M. Steuart. 

Director Steuart's communication followed receipt 
of a copy of a joint resolution passed by the San 
Francisco and Oakland Chambers of Commerce, and 
a letter of explanation from Robert Newton Lynch 
and Joseph M. Parker of the local organizations. 

The resolution reads in part as follows: 

"Whereas, the present San Francisco-Oakland 
Metropolitan Area, as recognized by the United States 
Bureau of Census, is not sufficiently extensive to 
comprehend the total developed area of San Fran- 
cisco Bav communities; and . . 

•'Whereas, the San Francisco Bay area comprising 
one economic unit is composed of portions of nine 
counties which front on this bay; , 

"Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved That in the inter- 
est of all the communities around San Francisco Bay, 
the Director of Census be requested to extend the 
boundary line of the San Francisco-Oakland Metro- 
politan Area to include the nine counties of: Alameda, 
Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, 
San Francisco, Solano and Sonoma. 

"Be It Further Resolved That if, in the opinion of 
the Bureau of Cen.sus, the rural areas of these coun- 
ties should be separated from the urban and indus- 
trial sections fronting on the bay, the newly deter- 
mined boundary line should be .so drawn as lo 
comprehend within the Metropolitan Area of all 
Urban and Industrial Development on the San Fran-

shall return to Honolulu August 
1 with our ne'^'est ship the 
"Humula," which is a million- 
dollar craft all ready to sail on 
its maiden voyage. In celebrat- 
ing Harbor Day San Francisco 
should not overlook the im- 
portance of shipbuilding. San 
Francisco is the natural ship- 
building center of the Pacific 
Ocean. It should strenghten its 
position as the most important 
shipbuilding city on the west 
coast of America." 

Members of the Junior Cham- 
ber Marine Committee, start- 
ing with the "Malolo," will 
meet at quarantine all im- 
portant liners from now until 
Harbor Day. August 22. The 
purpose, according to Wilson 
Meyer, chairman of the Junior 
Chamber Marine Committee, is 
to acquaint all visitors with 
Harbor Day and urge them to 
be present and partake in the 
celebration on that day. 

Harbor Day was also enthu- 
siastically endorsed by George 
W. Kleiser of San Francisco, 
president of Foster & Kleiser, 
who returned on the "Malolo" 
from a vacation in the Hawai- 
ian Islands. "It is the greatest 
advertising plan ever devised 
to tell the world about San 
Francisco's harbor," asserted 
Kleiser.

vised of the recommendation to include all or por- 
tions of the nine counties. With this information 
before him Director Steuart wrote Vice President 
Lynch as follows: 

"I am glad to linow that the San Francisco and 
Oaliland Chambers of Commerce have agreed to liave 
the two cities included in one metropolitan district. 
This, I think, is as it should be. St. Paul and Minne- 
apolis have reached a similar agreement for a metro- 
politan district under the designation of the Twin 
City ^letropolitan District." 

President Aimer :M. Xewhall of the San Francisco 
Chamber, said : "The fact that the Census Bureau looks 
with favor upon the application of the San Francisco 
and Oakland Chambers of Commerce for a greater 
metropolitan area is very gratifying. We are pleased 
for several reasons, and not the least is that, it will 
bring Oakland, San Francisco and all the conmmni- 
ties about the bay closer together and that instead of 
working separately as in the past, we \\ill be a unit 
for the greater development of the San Francisco 
Bay Area. 

"The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce is 
highly pleased that a campaign of such duration ap- 
pears to be drawing to a victorious end. We want to 
give full credit to the Regional Plan Association and 
the Oakland Chamber of Commerce, as well as all 
others who cooperated with us in this campaign. 

"In this caniijaign emphasis was added to the deter- 
mination of the San Francisco and Oakland Cham- 
bers of Commerce to pull together for the greater 
de\^lopment of the San Francisco Area." 



petroleum output showed fur- 
ther expansion as compared 
with both periods. Receipts of 
cotton into sight were greater 
than a year ago. Receipts of 
cattle at primary markets for 
the latest reported week show- 
ed a decline from last year, 
while hog receipts registered 
a gain. Distribution of goods 
through primary channels, as 
indicated by freight-car load- 
ings, covering the latest week, 
was greater than a year ago. 

Tlie general index of whole- 
sale pi'ices showed a gain over 
the preceding week hut was 
still about one per cent below 
the level which prevailed a 
>'e:ir ago. Prices for iron an<l 
steel showed no cluinge frtun

higher than last year. Cotton 
prices averaged higher than 
the previous week but weri' 
lower than a year ago. Loans 
and discounts of Federal re- 
serve member banks showetl 
practically no change from the 
pri'ci'ding week hut were high-

UNITY IN BAY AREA CROWS! 



U.S. Trade 
Envoy Hears 
S. Protest 

Unfair Practice 
of Eastern Firm 
Will Be Stopped 



To protect ttic name of 
San Francisco and Cali- 
f o r n i a manufactured 
sport hats, the Federal 
Trade Commission held hear- 
igs in San F'rancisco through 
Examiner John W. Addison at 
the Federal Building Monday 
and Tuesday of this week, at 
which representatives of the 
Chamher of Commerce and lo- 
ll sport hat manufacturers in- 
troduced evidence to assist the 
commission in establishing for 
local and California manufac- 
crs the exclusive right to 
the use of the term "California 
sport hats." 

Early last year local millin- 
ery manufacturers called the 
attention of the Chamber of 
Commerce Industrial Depart- 
ment to the fact that a Mil- 
waukee, Wisconsin, firm wa; 
mauufacturing hats and mer- 
chandising them as "California 
sport hats." This unethical 
competition resulted in a dis- 
tinct injury to an industry 
which employs almost 1500 lo- 
cal people in the manufacture 
of a product valued at over 
four and one-half million dol- 
lars and which is distributed 
throughout the country and 
exported to the island posses- 
sions. 

Following this request the 
commerce body gave the local 
manufacturers the assistance 
of their local and Washington, 
D. C, offices to bring the case 
before the Federal Trade Com- 
sion. After extensive corres- 
pondence on the part of the 
Chamber of Commerce and 
through the personal efforts of 

C. B. Dodds, its Washington, 

D. C, representative, the Fed- 
eral Trade Commission issued 
a complaint ordering the of- 
fending manufacturer "To 
cease and desist" in the use of

This Is Important 
To You! 



As secretary of the San Francisco Endorsement 
Council, I have been autliorized to broadcast the 
importance of NOT SUBSCRIBING TO ANY AP- 
PEAL FOR FUNDS unless solicitors present 
authentic credentials signifying the endorsement 
of the Council. 

The San Francisco Endorsement Council, as you 
know, was created for the regulation of appeals 
made upon the public in order to conserve the giv- 
ing power of our community for those institutions 
of San Francisco which are necessary.to the public 
welfare. 

The Council holds quarterly meetings in Jan- 
uary, April, July and October of each year. Notice 
of action taken on all applications filed is sent to 
the Chamber of Commerce and service clubs, who 
by their endorsement of the Council and its pro- 
gram, form the constituent membership of the 
Council. This notice is also published in SAN 
FRANCISCO BUSINESS, which is mailed to every 
member of the Chamber of Commerce. 

ALL projects seeking contributions, that file 
application for endorsement, will be investigated 
by the Council and when approved will be given 
proper credentials; and all causes so approved by 
the Council will be worthy of your support if you 
desire to give it. 

ANY project seeking funds, not so endorsed, 
shouhl properly be referred to the San Francisco 
Endorsement Council. 

Ticket selling campaigns, convention and adver- 
tising campaigns, do not come within the pur- 
view of the Council. As such, campaigns should 
stand on their own inerits, they are not considered 
for endorsement. 

In order to suppress the annoyance caused by 
the numerous TELEPHONE SOLICITATIONS, it 
is suggested that no recognition be given these 
requests unless the party talking is well known 
and the facts given are authentic. 

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY OF STOPPING 
THE NUMEROUS DEMANDS FOR FUNDS — 
DON'T GIVE ANY— UNLESS PROPER CREDEN- 
TIALS ARE PRESENTED. 

JOHN L. CLYMER, 

Managing Director.

Harbor Day 
Call Sent By 
CaptDollar 

We NeedWaking Up 

To Our Port Value 

Says Veteran 



A call to all San Francisco 
to observe "Harbor 
Day," August 22, was 
issued this week by 
Captain Robert Dollar, "the 
grand old man of Pacific Coast 
shipping," and president of 
the 1100,000,000 Dollar Steam- 
ship combine just organized, 

"Young men sometimes see a 
city's needs clearer than those 
of the older generation," de- 
clared Captain Dollar. "The 
'Harbor Day' movement in- 
augurated by the Marine Com- 
mittee of the Junior Chamber 
of Conmierce is an example of 
youthful enthusiasm well di- 
rected. For years San Fran- 
cisco has been in need of wak- 
ing up to the importance of its 
harbor, not only to shipping 
but to all business. It must also 
recognize the improvements 
necessary to maintain this city 
in its present high position in 
world trade. The organization 
of our .H100,000,000 ship corpo 
ration, with headquarters ir 
San Francisco, is an indication 
of our faith in the future 
this city as a shipping center. 
Shipping men alone, however, 
cannot make this port fulfill its 
destiny. Every individual citi- 
zen of San Francisco must be 
ship-minded." 

"Horace Greeley's advice 'Go 
West, young man,' still holds 
true. The Junior Chamber of 
Commerce and all other young 
men in San Francisco should 
turn their thoughts west to the 
Orient. Tliat is where the trade 
battles of the future -will be 
fought. We can have no idea 
of the size to which San Fran- 
cisco will grow if only it will 
utilize its natural advantages 
and develop its harbor and 
foreign trade."

of 7 Named 
To Map Plan 

S. F. Supervisors 
Laud Action of 
Chamber Leaders 



UNDER authority vested 
in them at the mass 
meeting of represen- 
tatives of some thirty 
chambers of commerce held 
here July 24, Presidents Aimer 
M. Newhall and E. B. Field of 
the San Francisco and the Oak- 
land Chambers of Commerce, 
respectively, yesterday nameil 
a committee of seven including 
themselves, to work out ways 
and means of uniting the forces 
about the bay for the greater 
development of the area as a 
whole. 

The committee is as follows: 
Aimer M. Newhall, San Fran- 
cisco; E. B. Field, Oakland; E. 
N. Hinman, Redwood City; E. 
N. Richmond, San Jose; George 
P. Keller, Martinez; T. J. 
O'Hara, Vallejo, and H. U. 
Ridgeway, San Rafael. 

The committee will be called 
together at an early date, it was 
stated yesterday. At that time 
a tentative program of co- 
operation will be worked out 
and following a survey of the 
situation the committee of 
seven will report back to the 
general conunittee. 

As was stated by numerous 
speakers at the July 24 meet- 
ing, it is thought that unifica- 
tion of purpose and effort will 
bring about a more intensive 
and greater industrial, com- 
mercial and social development 
of the various communities of 
the nine counties in the bay 
area and the district as a whole. 
The San Francisco Board of 
Supervisors on August 5, en- 
dorsed the action of the mass 
meeting of July 24 by imani- 
mously adapting the following 
resolution :

SAN FRANCISCO BUSINESS, ArGUST 7, 1929 



Annual Call Issued 

To Foreign Trade 

Council 



THE annual call to con- 
vention is now being 
issued by the Paciflc 
Foreign Trade Council, 
for the seventh meeting, to be 
held this year in Seattle, Wash- 
ington, September 18 to 20. 

The constantly widening 
scope of this gathering is 
shown by the fact that interest 
in attending has been evi- 
denced by representatives of 
such corporations as the Sieb- 
erling Ruljber Company, Pitts- 
burgh Coal Company, Tlie 
Willys-Overland Company, 
Emerson-Brantingham Corpo- 
ration, Marathon Paper Mills 
of Wisconsin, American Farm 
Bureau Federation, United 
Press, Independent G r o c e r s' 
Alliance of America and others 
of equal prominence. 

The program appeals to these 
varied interests because there 
arc few lines of industry not 
allectcd in .some manner by 
foreign trade. The manufac- 
turer, farmer, banker, mer- 
eiiaiil, railroad and steamship 
111(11, nmst needs be interested 
ill the development of foreign 
Irailc as it stimulates produc- 
tion, industry and transporta- 
tion. Nothing is more instru- 
nieiilaJ ill awakening ii foreign 
li'a<le consciousness than a 
gathering of such interests for 
cooperation. It is a laboratory 
for consolidating ideas and for 
charting a business course for 
the future. 

The various departments of 
the (iovernment recognize this 
liicl, and participate by send- 
ing representatives to appear 
tin the jirogi'ain and assist in 
till' Trade Adviser Service 
which is a special feature de- 
signed to aid the business man 
in secm'lng expert advice on 
problems of his individual 
business. Trade Conmils.sloners 
and Ojmnierclal Attaches sta- 
tioned In foreign lands, the 
District Managers of the Hu- 
reiiu of Foreign and Domestic 
Cnmnierce, represent the De- 
imrtment of Commerce. The 
:)e|>arlment of State sends 
.\Mierlean Consuls from foreign 
posts, and the IleparlnieMt of 
.\grlcullure a[>poiiils represen- 
tiillves who have valuable in-

AREA C. OF C. 

[continued from page 1] 
July 24, in this city, the matter 
of harmonious endeavor among 
the various communities of the 
Bay Region was agreed upon; 
and 

Wliereas, the concensus of 
opinion was that this section 
of the state must, in order to 
progress and develop properly, 
work with a unity of purpose; 
and 

Whereas, it is obviously to 
the advantage of this city, just 
as it is to every other city in 
the Bay Region, to lend every 
support to the maintenance of 
harmonious relations among 
our respective communities, 
not only in securing new indus- 
tries, hut in every other line of 
human endeavor and commun- 
ity development; 

Now, Therefore, be it re- 
solved that the Board of Super- 
visors of the city and county 
of San Francisco go on record 
ill commendation of the meet- 
ing ol' the bay's commercial in- 
terests that has already been 
held, and oiTer cooperation in 
the furtherance of this com- 
mendable plan of unification of 
the aims and aspirations tor 
the development of the Hay 
Region.

CH.^iMBER HELPS 
MANUFACTURERS 



Efforts on the part of the 
San Francisco Chamber of 
Commerce tlirough its Do- 
mestic Trade Department to 
have contractors, builders 
and architects purchase 
material and supplies from 
San Francisco concerns, are 
meeting with success, ac- 
cording to Theodore Grady, 
Jr., Domestic Trade Com- 
missioner. Only last week 
the department was advised 
that specialized material to 
be used in one -of the new 
buildings in course of con- 
struction would be pur- 
chased from a local manu- 
facturing concern as a di- 
rect result of these efforts. 

"We are waging an inten- 
sive campaign in all lines 
to educate the people that 
San Francisco-made goods 
and building supplies are 
equal, if not superior, to 
any on the market," said 
Grady, "and many are 
agreeing with us. There is 
no need for any one to pur- 
chase outside goods when 
they can be bought from 
concerns located here and 
distribute their earnings 
here," concluded Grady.

Ruling A ids Re- Entry 
of S.F.Chinese 

Returning Merchants Are No Longer 
Subject to Needless Delays 



J\ LL Government red tape 
Avl involving the re-entry 

/ ^ of Chinese merchants 
into the United States 
following a visit to China has 
been cut, according to a tele- 
gram received by the Foreign 
Trade Department of the 
Chamber of Commerce from 
the organization's Washington 
representative, C. B. Dodds. 
Dodds' telegram reads as fol- 
lows : 

"State Department today ap- 
proved Labor Department's 
suggestion for pre-examination 
of Chinese merchants returning 
home." 

According to Chamber of 



Commerce officials, the action 
of the State Department means 
that when local Chinese mer- 
chants prepare to visit China 
with the intention of returning 
here, they will be given 
examination by immigration 
officials and advised of the 
rights, instead of as, at presen 
being detained for long periods 
on Angel Island until the 
right to re-enter the country is 
established. 

The action of the State De- 
partment means much to San 
Francisco in that it will further 
strengthen the already exist- 
ing friendly relations between 
this port and China.

manner: 

"So many persons from San 
I'ranclsco do come to New 
luigliind for summer vacations 
iind therefore we feel sure it

Cheek payments during the 
week ended July 27 were 
smaller than in the preceding 
week but larger than tor the 
corresponding period of 1>)28, 
according to the weekly state- 
ment of Ihe Department of 
Commerce. Greater activity in 
steel plants was recorded than 
in either Ihe preceding week or 
Ihe same period of last year. 
Tlie output of bituminous coal 
during Ihe latest reported 
week, while less than during 
the preceding week, exceeded 
that for Ihe corresponding 
period of a year ago. Crude 
pelroleum output showed fur- 
ther expansion as comi>ared 
with both periods. Receipts of 
cotlon into sight were greater 
than a year ago. Receipts of 
cattle and hogs at primary 
markets for Ihe latest reported 
week also registered a gain 
over last year.

September 30 
Last Day for Low Fares East 

You can still go East at low cost. Low summer 
rOLundtrip fares are good for return until 
October 31. 

With Southern Pacific's choice of Four Great 
Routes you can go one way, return another, 
linking the cities you want to visit and the 
natural wonders you want to see, in a single 
economical journey. 

For example: East over the direct Over- 
land Route, Golden State Route or Sun- 
set Route, thru New Orleans, and return 
over Northern lines and the scenic Shasta 
Route. 

The nearestSouthern Pacific agent will quote 
fares. 



"Overland Limited" 
')8hourS'—San Francisco to Chicago 

The "Overland Limited" is faster than any 
train on any other route, San Francisco to Chi- 
cago, by more than 10 hours. It is the West's 
premier train. 

From club-car to observation this transcon- 
tinental aristocrat carries the finest equipment 
obtainable. It is an All-Pullman train, of 
course. 

Also over the Overland Route: the "San 
Francisco Limited" (another fast All-Pullman 
train, at no extra fare), "Pacific Limited" and 
"Gold Coast". 




And on the Pacific Coast 

Convenient schedules — overnight Pullmans 
bring the favorite cities and resorts of the 
whole Pacific Coast as close as tomorrow 
morning. 

Nurtb: 5 trains daily over the scenic Shasta 
RouTi;. Their leader, the "Cascade", drives 
it's smooth way between San Francisco and 
Portland in 22 hours. (The Redwood Empire 
tour, by train or motor-coach can be part of 
your trip over Shasta Route) . 

South: 9 spleiidii! trains daily between Los 
Angeles and San Francisco. Four over-nigiit 
train-hotels are the "Owl," "Lark," "Padre" 
and "Sunset Limited." 

Pacific Coast vacation fares will be on sale 
until September 30 — 16-day return limit. 



Color-Hiearers 

of the Four Great Routes 

The fast "Overland Limited", "Sunset Limited", "Golden State 
Limited" and "Cascade" are trains famous the world over. Tlieir 
every refinement of travel comfort makes them always the choice 
of travelers of discrimination. Soft chimes that note approaching 
dinner, charming Chinese maids on the "Overland", typify the 
definite personality of these Southern Pacific pacemakers.

THE sailing of a ship 
from San F"rancisco 
oi'dinarily is of little 
news importance, lo- 
cally, i)ecause it is of almost 
hourly occurrence. 

There are few ports in the 
world that record more depar- 
tures and arrivals than the port 
of San Francisco, yet somehow, 
even with puhlic attention cen- 
tered upon more spectacular 
ways of travel, they brint* with 
them or take away the flavor of 
romance and of lastini* memo- 
ries. 

Less than two years ago — on 
Armistice Day, 1927 — San Fran- 
cisco celebrated the departure of 
the beautiful "Malolo" on her 
maiden voyage to Honolulu, and 
during the forty-one crossings 
that she has made since then she 
has built up a closer relationship 
between the people of California 
and their island neighbors. 

But no voyage ever under- 
taken by the "Malolo" or any 
other vessel has been of as great 
significance or of such com- 
mercial importance as the one 
which she will inaugiu'ate on the 
twenty-first of next month. Her 
next mission is to establish a 
new era of intercourse between 
the people of the American 
continent and of the countries 
bordering the Pacific. On that

The retail purchasini* power of 1.5 billion dollars 
and manufacturers requiring nearly a billion dol- 
lars of materials a year, means something to the 
distributor and manufacturer when they are found 
readily accessible in one market. That is what is 
available right in and around San Francisco within 
the area of forty-nine of California's wealthy coun- 
ties extending from the Oregon line in the north, 
to the Tehachapi Mountains in the south and to 
Nevada in the east. 

San Francisco is the HUB of this market, one 
and a half times the size of New York State. 

There are 246 cities and towns within this area, 
79 of these with a population of 2500 and over. 

Within the northern California market are five 
important smaller trading areas. The population

the income from i«rape acreage has, in times of vineyard 
prosperity, swelled the cotfers of the San Francisco whole- 
saler and retailer. Out of every dollar spent for building 
material, groceries, dress goods, farm implements, drug 
supplies and numerous other mercantile lines, 80 cents 
clears through the jobljer and distriljutor of San Fran- 
cisco. 

Several years of low prices for fresh and raisin grapes, 
a constant yearly toll of taxes and water costs and heavily 
mounting interest on both mortgage principal and arrear 
payments have virtually impoverished thousands of the 
grape growers in the San Joaquin Valley and in other 
grape sections. The decline in the farm value per ton of 
grapes from Jf 26.00 in 1923 to -f 16.00 in 1928 has brought 
with it a decrease of purchasing power which can be ex- 
pressed in a ratio of 106.6 in 1921 to 49.9 in 1926 and con- 
siderably below that level for the last three years. 

San Francisco merchants and distributors, who several 
years ago enjoyed a handsome San Joacjuin Valley busi- 
ness, now realize that the volume of purchases of staple 
lines by the 25,000 vineyardists of the state, has been cut 
to the bone. Box siiook manufacturers and lithographers 
are selling only enough of their supplies to meet the im- 
mediate I'equirements of the grape growers and shippers. 
The sales of spraying gear, plows and cultivators have 
been restricted to the point of utmost necessity. 
San Francisco automobile distributors through 
their valley agents arc receiving but a fraction 
of the orders that a prosperous San Joaquin Val- 
ley populatif)n would yield them. Tiie demand 
in the vineyard areas for such luxuries as radios 
and musical instruments has been at a standstill, 
the greatly restricted income of growers being 
entirely swallowed up by the piu'chase of every- 
day necessities. 

A San Francisco meat packer recalls twenty 
former accounts whose purchases dwindled to 
nothing during the grape depression of that last 
five years. The order book of the valley sales-

HARBOR

HARBOR DAY ! 
A big parade. Bluc-

Hands blaring. Stores 
decorated. Siiips in the liarbor hung 
with gaily colored bunting — and 
open to inspection by all San Fran-

tiiing doing all day long from one 
end of the waterfront to the other. 
And at night, fireworks and illumi-

celebrale "Harbor Day"; the reason being to pro- 
mote unity of purpose among all public agencies, 
shipping, cxjjort and domestic trade interests con- 
cerned in the future welfare of San Francisco. 

"History shows from the early days of the in- 
coming sailing ships of exploration parties, and 
later those of the forty-niners up to the present 
that San Francisco's waterfront has been identified 
with the growth of foreign trade; that at the pres- 
ent time San Francisco's ocean shipping and for- 
eign trade are in a great measure largely respon- 
sible for much of the wealth and prosperity of the 
people in San Francisco and the San Francisco Bay 
Metropolitan Area; that our future importance 
depends upon the expansion of foreign trade in the 
Pacific and through the Panama Canal. 

"San Francisco harbor is growing more and 
more important, — is now the principal base of 
operations of the commercial fleets of the Pacific 
and an important base for naval affairs. 

"I hereby proclaim Thursday, August 22, 1929, 
as 'Harbor Day,' a day to be set aside for the citi- 
zens of this city and county to promote unity of 
purpose among all public agencies, shipping, ex- 
port and domestic trade interests concerned in the 
future welfare of San Francisco, and I wish suc- 
cess to the organizations assuming responsibility 
for making 'Harbor Day' 
a memorable and pleas- 
urable event." 

With the message of 
the Mayor ringing in 
their ears, the people of 
San Francisco immedi- 
ately rallied to put "Har-

the first public announcement of 
"Harbor Day" on .July 15. 

Within a week, the project spread 
with wildfire rapidity. On July 
18, on the Panama-Pacific liner 
"California," directors and Marine Committee 
members of the Junior Chamber gathered with 
shipping, state, city and naval officials to map the 
program for "Harbor Day." On July 22, Mayor 
.lames Rolph, Jr., officially declared "Harbor Day" 
by the following proclamation: 

"It has come to my attention that on Thursday,

AMERICAN cities are rapidly spilling over 
their boundaries. The city limits are 
for many practical purposes becoming 
as useless as the battlement walls which 
surrounded medieval towns. San Francisco, Oak- 
land, and the bay cities arc among this group. 

Integrated development has penetrated the en- 
tire San Francisco Bay district. Each year the 
increasing difficulties to disseminate the "Warp" 
from the "Woof" have been made manifest 
through the appearance of joint highway districts, 
water supply districts, sewage disposal districts, 
utility districts, larger 
telephone exchange 
areas, park systems, 
police and fire protec- 
tion, etc. 

The real city today 
because of the auto- 
mobile, the telephone, 
and other distance di- 
minishing agencies ex-

WEEK 

/^.l.V FRAXCISCO is «£<?/« to be host to tlioiisamis of 

^^ retailers and buyers who are coming to this city during 

k J the weeks of August 19 to 31 to attend our Double 

Market Week, which is held under the auspices of the 

Manufacturers and Wholesalers Association. 

To aid in bringing these buyers to San Francisco, the 
Domestic Trade Bureau of the Chamber of Commerce is 
lending every possible assistance. A special invitation has 
been mailed to more than 7500 buyers, special news stories 
are to be mailed to all papers in this city's trade territory, 
and a concentrated effort will be made to sell San Francisco 
as the style center of the West for men's and women's wear. 
a>ul dry goods. 

Downtown business houses may help in making this affair 
an even greater success through special window displays 
and cards of welcome. The Chamber of Commerce appeals 
to Us members to do all in their power to make this great 
wholesale sates event a success, for through success the 
coiniiierciiil anil industrial life of the city will prosper. 



ent metropolitan development of the economic 
and social life of this region, a study was made of 
the nine counties fronting in the bay region. This 
showed that under the new influences and as a 
result of the shifting of population following the 
World War, distance began to be eliminated 
through the general weaving together of the whole 
fabric of the San Francisco Bay region. It was 
found that the sections beyond the boundaries of 
the 1920 Metropolitan Area were being drawn into 
the daily life of the central cities. 

The high points of the preliminary study reveal 
that in the geographi- 
cal lay-out of the San 
Francisco Bay region 
and tributary valleys, 
including the nine l)ay 
counties, there are five 
prominent valleys — 
Somona Valley on the 
north extending from 
Healdsburg to the San 
Pabk) Bay, the Xapa 
Valley extending from 
("alisloga to the San 
Bai)lo Bay, the Solano 
Valley extending from 
Fairfield to Suisun 
Bay. On the east are 
Walnut Creek and 
l,i\ermore valleys and 
on the south tile Santa

from Coyote lo the

SAN FRANCISCO BUSINESS, AITGUST 14, 1929 





IN this era of speed when 
there is placed upon time 
a greater urge and valua- 
tion than ever before, the 
question of safe, rapid, urban 
transportation is a factor of 
prime importance. Further- 
more, with the present day 
trend toward keen competi- 
tion between cities striving for 
supremacy, the one which 
side-steps this highly impor- 
tant consideration and sub- 
jects its citizens, its neighbors 
and its visitors to the present wasteful traf 
fie slowup will eventually find its growth 
and prosperity effectually checked. 

Rapid transit to practically any part of 
the built-up sections of this city has long 
since gone by the board. The time loss sad- 
dled upon its citizens because of this is be- 
yond compute in terms of dollars and the 
enormity of this waste is probably little 
realized. A prominent engineering asso- 
ciation has estimated that traffic delays on 
New York streets result in an annual loss 
of ipf) 10,000,000. Surely, here is something 
to think about. 

The condition brought about by 
creasing vehicu- 
lar traffic is one 
of the most per- 
plexing situations 
faced alike by all 
large communi- 
ties. Each in its 
own way is strug- 
gling with this 
modern hin- 
drance to prog- 
ress more or less successfully.

ures of questionable accomplishment, others more 
drastically and looking further ahead. It is high 
time that San Francisco join this latter class. 

This briefly let us say. 




the ever-in- 




is the immediate major 
problem of our city — cer- 
tainly a hard nut to 
crack. Happily, a solution 
is in sight. In the present 
budget a preliminary 
fund was provided to 
cover expense of an in- 
vestigation of a proposed 
subway under Market 
Street by the city engi- 
neer. This means a sub- 
stantial start toward 
something which in its consum- 
mation will bring definite relief. 
I'p to the present, it is at- 
tempted to meet the situation by 
regulation of street traffic. While 
this may have accomplished 
much in the direction of safety, 
who can say it has afforded any 
material improvement toward 
rapid transit? 

It is deemed needless to elab- 
orate or dwell further here upon 
the many phases of traffic con- 
gestion blanketed over a large and constantly in- 
creasing important area of the city. It is felt that 
the condition is familiar to the 
reader of this article, the pri- 
mary object of which is to add 
endorsement to the proposed 
subway as the logical and most 
far-reaching jjlan for solving our 
transportation problem and to 
stress its need. 

The observant visitor in 
such cities as New York, 
Boston and Philadelphia 
will interestedly take note

SAN FRANCISCO BUSINESS, AUGUST 14, 1929 



It is hardly necessary to say more in support of 
the assertion that the 1929 Pacific Radio Show will 
be nationally representative to the utmost degree. 
Completeness, one of the prime essentials of a suc- 
cessful trade show, is assured. 

Two other factors are included in the trinity of 
elements which make such a show possible — the 
vast host of radio owners and the broadcasters. 
These, with the exhibiting manufacturers and deal- 
ers, provide the three-cornered structiu'e upon 
which the radio industry rests. Perhaps there 
should be added, the radio journals and the radio 
departments of the daily press. Undoubtedly they 
play an increasingly important part 

The exhibitors who will participate in the 1929 
Radio Show have indicated that 
they sense a widening public inter- 
est which will be reflected by a large 
increase of attendance over last 
year's figures. Each year the Radio 
Show has achieved an 
increase in attendance _ .- » 
over the previous one. 
Last year the total was 
around 50,000. 

There are logical 
reasons for confidence 
that a new all-time at- 
tendance mark will 
have been established 
when the 1929 Radio 
Show comes to a close 
on Saturday, Aug. 24. 

Radio owners are rapidly advancing beyond the 
status of mere dial turners. They are becoming 
critical and well-informed. It is safe to say that a 
great proportion of the visitors to the Radio Show 
this year will go because they are interested in 
radio itself, rather than the entertainment features 

at the show, and this is in no way a , 

disparagement of the latter attrac- 
tions. 

The simple fact is that the radio 
public is alive to the truth of the 
declaration that the past year has 
seen the most amazing progress 
since the inception of radio. The 
Radio Show will provide the oppor- 






tunity for a comprehensive survey, under one roof, 
of the strides made toward standarized perfection 
during twelve months of remarkable development. 
One of the things the show committee has done 
gg-'="^~'^~ '^"^^^~-^ to facilitate such a survey 

^ ' ' is the providing of twelve 

sound-proof demonstrat- 
ing rooms at the audito- 
rium. 

Reference to the Pa- 
cific Radio Show as an 
exposition of a billion- 
dollar industry is not an 
overstatement. The fig- 
ure is used in terms of 
total annual sales, and 
there is every indi- 
cation that the 1929 
total will reach and 
pass the billion-dol- 
lar mark. For 1928 
the sales total, in 
round nimibers, was 
about .1^650,000. 

The huge increase 
for the current year 
is attributable main- 
ly to the stability 
which the present 
high development of radio has brought to the in- 
dustry. This has resulted in a feeling of confidence 
among the buying public that is being reflected in 
an unprecedented demand for the up-to-date re- 
ceiver. 

According to reliable statistics only one-fourth 
of American homes have radio sets and only one- 
third of the sets in use can be classed as modern. 
Consequently, there is a vast replacement market 
for radio as well as the field for new sales. 

These figures are cited to 
show that the Pacific Radio 
Show is representative of an 
>Y y/^ , " industry that is a long way re- 

moved from the saturation

IX (lie celebration of the Serra Pilgrimage and 
Fiesta on the Monterey Peninsula, California 
returns to its romantic "golden age." As his- 
toric episodes are re-enacted at tiie old-time 
cii|)ilal, from August 15 to 18, traditional hospital- 
ity will |)revail '"Nvilhin tlie Circle of iMichant- 
ment." 

Tile setting for ail tlie colorful pagcanlry is Old 
Monterey itself. Few places in 
America have such a rich liisloric 
background. In 1.')I2. oiily lil'ly 
years after the first voyage oC 
C.olunihu.s, the Monterey coast was 
explored by Juan Hodriguez Ca- 
iirilio; and later, in KiO'i-.'?, i)y \is- 
caino. Hut not until 1770 was settle- 
ment miide by the S|)aniards undci- 
Serra ;uid Portola, and it was linn lli.il Moiilcrc y 
became California's first capital. 

Many cpiaint adobes and othei- iidirisliiig struc- 
tures of the "olden, golden days" are still standing, 
to I'cmind of this glorious past. Perhaps most 
visited is Ihe Old Customs House on the baysliDrc, 
where Ihe American flag was first oflicially raised 
over California .July 7, 18 Hi. Another is Collon 
Hall, formerly the capitol, and next io il is Ihe 
Monterey Municipal Ro.se (larden, willi uiauy 




varieties of roses which graced the ])atios of the 
early Spanish settlers. 

Visitors to Monterey during flic Serra Pilgrim- 
age will view Ihe old structures under ideal condi- 
tions. They will .see old San Carlos Church in Mon- 
terey, erected in 17!) 1; Carniel Mission, a (piarter- 
century older; the first theatre in California, now 
a museum sho]); the "llou.se of the Four Winds." 
once the Hall of Records; the first 
brick house in California; the house 
wlu'i'e Robert l.ouis Stevenson lived 
in 1S7!): Ihe old Pacific Ruilding; 
Sheiinan's llead(|uarters; the old 
Whaling Slalion. and many dwell- 
ings (piaiiil and picturesipie. 

Willi suth a liackgi'ound. the 
Scrrii i'iigriinagr and Fiesta will 
be held amidst surroundings most ajjpropriale and 
colorful. The ])rogram will include Ihe pageant- 
drama of Padre .luniiiero Serra, found<'r of Ihe 
California Missions; the "Parade of the Three 
Occupations." commemorating the three historic 
regimes: Spanish, Mexican and .\merican; street 
dances, serenades, costume balls and barbecues; 
Ihe "Mojiganga," with feats of horsemanship and 
roping by vacpieros; and. on Sunday, Ihe pilgrim- 
age over Ihe trail of the jiadrcs to old Carmel Mis- 



SAN FRANCISCO BUSINESS, AUGUST 14, 1929 



sion, followed by the impressive "Roll-Call of the 
Missions." 

In presenting the pageant-drama this year much 
use will be made of El Estero, the lovely lagoon 
between Monterey and Del Monte. Here will float 
the canoes of the Indians and replicas of the ships 
which brought Padre Serra and ' 
his followers to our shores. The 
beauty of the surroundings dur- 
ing the performances — all in the 
evening — will add greatly to the 
charm of the pageant, which is 
under the experienced direction 
of Arthur Cyril. 

The "Parade of the Three Oc- 
cupations" will I)e a most inter- 
esting procession, each division 
of marchers representing a dis- 
tinct historical period. There will 
be more than a thousand in line, 
and their costumes, as well as 
being colorful, will also be 
authentic and correct. 

The Serra celebration is famous for its carefree 
enthusiasm and spontaneity. Not all of the merry- 
making is planned beforehand, but much arises 
out of the occasion itself. The days and nights are 
filled with festal delight. 

In Monterey there is picturesque life and color 
everywhere. From patio and rose-decked balcony 
are wafted the strains of guitars and ringing 
laughter, the sound of castanets and dancing 
feet. Vaqueros dash by on their prancing 
steeds. Bands of musicians play and sing be- 
loved ballads of old Castile and Catalonia. 




Brave dons in charro costumes bow gracefully 
l)efore smiling senoritas, made more lovely with 
their precious jewelry and laces. Swarthy neo- 
phytes, in troops, trail after silent padres as vesper 
bells chime from San Carlos Church and Carmel 
Mission. 

Old Carmel Mission (San Car- 
los de Borromeo) , at Carmel just 
south of Monterey, will be visited 
by throngs during the Serra Pil- 
grimage. Begun in 1771, it was 
the beloved home of Padre Juni- 
pero Serra, here he lies buried; 
and a stately sarcophagus has 
been placed here in his honor. 
The mission occupies a beautiful 
site near the little Carmel River, 
the sea on one side, the moun- 
tains on the other. 

It appears indeed api)ropriate 
that honor be accorded to Padre 
Junipero Serra. Explorer, mis- 
sionary, architect, builder, agi'iculturist — he was 
a many-sided man, a leader fit to serve as model 
for Californians of following generations. 

And assuredly those early Spanish i)ioneers gave 
to California a colorful historic background for 
the picturesque Pageant of Progress which we, in 
this generation, are witnessing and enjoying so 
wholeheartedly. The beauty and grace of their

Building Markets for San Francisco- Made Goods 



MODERN industrial plants are 
giving greater consideration 
to markets when selecting 
new locations than ever be- 
fore. Present-day competition has forced 
them to carefully consider distributing 
costs and the advantages of the contem- 
plated location. 

Given satisfactory transportation, 
cheap fuel and power, good labor condi- 
tions, reasonably priced sites, and an 
ample supply of raw materials, a properly 
managed industry may succeed in any 
location. With all of these advantages, 



By L. O. HEAD 

Vice-President of the Sati Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce, and Chair- 
man of the hidiistrial Committee 



plus a growing market, the success of an 
industry in such a location is assured 
under any reasonable conditions. 

These are the conditions which place 
San Francisco in an advantageous posi- 
tion to become the great industrial and 
merchandising center of the Pacific Coast.

{^Effective August 14) 

Virtually requires that every automobile owner have at least 
$11,000 cash on hand to meet any judgment rendered as the 
result of an accident. 

Taking a Chance 

on winning a suit, whether rcsponsihio or not, may cost several 
limes $11,000. 

Three Choices 

To continue as a licensed operator after failing to satisfy any 
judgment you must deposit .$11,000 in cash or acceptable 
securities, or Olc a surety bond or public liability and property

The Best Way 

is to avoid heavy personal loss and .serious difTicully by carry- 
ing an Associated Indemnity Corporation policy. Kc<iuires a 
comparatively small deposit while giving positive protection

Here is San Francisco's opportunity and 
San Francisco is accepting it. 

Since its inception, the Industrial Com- 
mittee of the Chamber of Commerce has 
given a great amount of attention to 
building markets for San Francisco goods. 
This committee has felt a definite obhga- 
tion to help the firms which it has en- 
couraged to estabhsh here, to succeed by 
increasing the markets for their products. 

Two methods of building markets for 
local firms were considered by the com- 
mittee. It might concentrate its efforts 
on developing a local demand for San 
Francisco-made goods or it could build a 
trading center here for not only locally 
made, but all goods. 

The committee selected the latter plan 
because it believed that if San Francisco 
could become the western market for 
both local and eastern products, the re- 
tailer would have a greater variety to 
select from and would consequently do 
more of his buying here, both from local 
and eastern firms, than if he had but a 
limited variety to choose from. 

To this end, eastern concerns have 
been encouraged to establish distributing 
branches in San Francisco when their 
business did not justify the location of a 
branch factory. Through such a policy, it 
is the committee's belief that as the busi- 
ness of these distributing branches grows, 
a branch factory will become necessary. 
Meanwhile. San Francisco enjoys the ad- 
vantages of increased payrolls, greater 
local business as well as virtually being 
selected as the future location of a new 
industry. 

MARKET WEEK INCREASES 
LOCAL S.\LES 

San Francisco's coming Double Mar- 
ket Week, August 10 to 31 bears out the 
wisdom of this policy. For two weeks, 
buyers from western states will be in our 
city selecting fall and winter stocks from 
the displays of eastern as well as local 
concerns. 

Market Week, incidentally, is another 
means by which an increased outlet for 
local goods has been established. Since 
early days, man has gone to market, but 
it remained for W. W. Stetlheimer of 
Xeusladicr Hros. to originate an idea in 
1020 which brings the buyers to San 
Francisco and keeps them coming. Mr. 
Sielthcinier reasoned that if you could d.i 
siinulhing to make it prolilable to bri.i^ 
tile buyers to your place of business, it 
would result in a distinct benefit to the 
wholesalers and manufacturers as well as 
to the purchasing retailer. 

It is common knowledge that no exec- 
utive can hope to call upon all of his 
firm's customers, consequently his sales- 
men are the only possible personal con- 
tact with the trade. Should this sales- 
man leave the firm, as is often the case, 
he would be in a position lo take the 
trade with him. In order that firm heads 
might become acquainted with their cus- 



SAN FRANCISCO BUSINESS, AUGUST 14, 1929 



tomers, the only solution was to bring the 
customers to San Francisco to meet them. 

To this end, San Francisco's first Mar- 
ket Week was planned. A system of fare 
refunds was developed whereby the re- 
tailer is given his transportation expense 
if he makes purchases in varying amounts 
dependent upon his distance from San 
Francisco. From the first market, those 
taking part in Market Week have fea- 
tured style, quality, and price. It has been 
very definite policy that closeouts. old 
merchandise, and unsuitable merchandise 
would not be unloaded on buyers. 

Although exact attendance figures are 
not available for each of the weeks be- 
cause all buyers from each firm are not 
registered, the increase in the amount of 
fare refunds paid out each year indicates 
that the number attending these market 
weeks have increased fifty per cent since 
their establishment. Since many of the 
larger houses claim no refund, this in- 
crease is probably even larger. 

This year, the 103 manufacturers and 
wholesalers of men's and women's wear- 
ing apparel, dry goods, etc., have invited 
over twenty thousand retailers to attend 
Market Week. Each of these buyers will 
be provided with a complete buyer's 
guide in order that they may contact each 
of the various places of business offering 
merchandise of interest to them. 

To assist in making the affair a success 
and to more strongly establish San Fran- 
cisco as a style and market center, the 
Domestic Trade Committee of the Cham- 
ber of Commerce has sent over 7S00 per- 
sonal invitations to the retailers in the 
San Francisco trade territory urging that 
they attend the affair. In addition, the 
committee is giving the Manufacturers 
and Wholesalers Association, the spon- 
sors of the event, every possible coopera- 
tion. 

FURNITURE MARKET WEEK 

Another means of building San Fran- 
cisco as a market center is the San Fran- 
cisco Furniture Exchange and its semi- 
annual market weeks. Starting in a few 
floors on Market Street, the Furniture 
Exchange has gradually grown until to- 
day it is the outstanding exchange of its 
kind west of Chicago, 

The present building, which was dedi- 
cated to "The Better Homes Movement" 
in 1921 by Aurelia Henry Reinhardt un- 
der the auspices of the San Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce, houses a com- 
plete line of household furnishings in 
individual manufacturers' and jobbers' 
displays throughout the eight floors of the 
building. Here the retail furniture dealer 
has an opportunity to compare the best 
of both eastern and western factories with 
the result that he may do all of his buy- 
ing in San Francisco. Such a market has 
made possible the building of large plants 
as the Kroehler Manufacturing Com- 
pany, largest manufacturers of uphol- 
stered furniture in the world; the Sim- 
mons Company and the Rome Company, 
the two outstanding metal furniture 
manufacturers of the country; the Si-

large stove concerns which are making 
a variety of stoves for western markets. 
At the recent twenty-eighth semi-an- 
nual furniture market just concluded, 
over 3000 dealers were in San Francisco 
for the fall and winter buying. At this 
market, the Western Furniture Confer- 



ence was formed from representatives of 
the five district associations of the eleven 
western states. This new association will 
hold its annual meetings here with the 
restult that San Francisco is firmly en- 
trenched as the Furniture Market and 
Style Center of the West. Such market 
development work will do much towards 
attracting other house furnishing manu- 
facturers to this city. 

Although both of these great marketing 
institutions are separate and distinct 
from the Chamber of Commerce, this 
organization has been of very definite 
influence in their upbuilding, and will 
continue to cooperate in their further 
development in order that San Francisco 
may grow industrially. 



The 
FIREMAN'S FUND 

Settles on the Spot 



On Tuesday afternoon, July 2, fire broke out on the 
wooded slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, back of Mill Valley. 
On Wednesday morning, July 3, a general officer of our 
Companies, at the head of a staff of trained men, opened 
adjusting headquarters in a Mill Valley store building. 
For four days and four nights — while the flames swept 
through the nearby mountain canyons and threatened 
to wipe out the business district and neighboring towns 
as well— the work of checking, settling ;ind paying 
losses went on. 

On Saturday, July 6, the last claim had been paid and 
the temporary office closed. Our Companies were inter- 
ested in losses involving property values amoniiring to 
approximately }^2fX),00{). 

The Fireman's Fund handled its losses in the BcrkcKy 
fire in the same manner. It is the Company's policy to 
settle losses promptly in all cases where the facts are 

clear and tbcri- is no suspicion ot traiul.

In a similar manner, the Chamber was 
instrumental in assisting in the building 
of the Apparel Center Building, where 
dozens of manufacturers, jobbers and 
wholesalers of women's wear are housed 
in one structure. This building will be 
one of the buying centers during ^Market 
Week, and is a distinct benefit to the 
buyers, since they may find a wide variety 
of merchandise housed in one building. 

DOMESTIC TRADE BUREAU 
ACTIVITIES 

The building of the various marketing 
institutions referred to has been done 
largely by committee of the Industrial 
Committee, but increasing needs for 
more concentrated marketing activities 
have caused the committee to set up a 
new bureau for the sole purpose of devel- 
oping greater markets for San Francisco 
goods. 

A special Domestic Trade Committee 
of the Industrial Committee was organ- 
ized with the following members: Her- 
bert Eloesser of Eloesser-Heynemann 
Co., chairman. Wesley O. Ash of U. S. 
Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Com- 
merce, S. W. Burtchaell of DoUiver 
Brothers, M. X. Harris of \'an .\rsdale, 
Harris Co., Ed. Hume of George W. 
Hume Company. Frank F. Kilsby of 
Recorder Printing & Publishing Co., 
Daniel E. Koshland of Levi Strauss Co., 
W. B. Maxwell of Blake. Mofiitt & 
Towne, Harry J. iMoore of Furniture 
Exchange, Alfred E. Raas of Muller & 
Raas. H. A. Sa.xe of Sterling Furniture 
Co.. X. B. Stern of Johnston-.\yrcs Co.. 
and Paul Wormser of Sussman, Worm- 
ser & Company. 

To serve this committee in its activ- 
ities, the various domestic trade activities 
were consolidated under the direction of 
Mr. Theodore Grady. Jr., Domestic 
Trade Commissioner in charge of the 
Domcslic Trade Bureau. This bureau is 
continuing the directory of manufactur- 
ers and their proilucls which the Cham- 
ber has maintained for a number of 
years, Through his directory, which lists 
nianufaclurcrs and each of their various 
products, the Chamber has been able lo 
place many buyers in conUut with local 
iirnis. 

In addition to Ihc work previously 
carried on by the Chamber, the Domestic 
Trade Commiltee is develoiiing now mar- 
kets. Some of the more recent work of 
this committee includes a good will excur- 
sion to I'tah and Idaho, work with ihc 
Furnilure Exchange in carrying on Furni- 
ture Market Week and the development 
of greater ilemand for locally manufac- 
tured products. 

In the latter work, the Domestic Trade 
Commissioner has addressed the various 
buyers and assistant buyers of the City 
of Paris, the White House, O'Connor. 
Moffat 1 & Co., and The Emporium, In 
this work, the commissioner, at Ihi' com- 
mittee's direction, has borne in mind the 
fad that business lo be successful, must 
produce a profit. .Xccordingly. these buy- 
ers have been uppeniud to to purchase

The History <?/ California's State Fair 



CALIFORNIA, the Golden State 
of romance, rich production, 
natural wonders and boundless 
resources has a scintillating 
celebration on her calendar this year. It 
is the 7Sth anniversary of the founding 
of her State Fair — a Diamond Jubilee of 
a great institution that had its humble 
beginning in San Francisco in 1S54. 

To best picture the growth of this in- 
stitution and its importance to Cahfornia 
we draw the following contrasts:

of the entire West, for not only will every 
California county be represented but our 
neighbor states will participate with gor- 
geous displays. 

The first state fair had only $5,000 to 
offer as premiums. At the Diamond Jubi- 
lee exposition more than $125,000 will be 
awarded to exhibitors. 

Exhibits were transported to the first 
state fair by ox-cart and mule team. At 
the Jubilee Fair they will be brought by 
steamer, railroad and airplane. 

The comparisons are made, not to dis- 
parage the importance of Cahfornia's 
early state fairs, but to show what a tre- 
mendously valuable asset has been built 
up for the people of the state in three- 
quarters of a century. 

Indeed, we cannot overestimate or 
overpraise the service rendered to Cali- 
fornia by the small group of pioneers who 
founded the State Agricultural Society 
and conducted the very first state fair. 
Seven of the twelve directors were San 
Franciscans, so it may be said that San 
Francisco more than any other city in the 
state was responsible for creating this 
exceedingly valuable enterprise. 

It is the more notable because in those 
days ''GOLD'' was the magic word. Cali- 
fornia was known almost exclusively as 
a mineral-producing state. It remained 
for the comparatively small group of 
agricultural-minded pioneers to prove 
that California had potential soil re- 
sources far greater than the wealth stored 
away in her mines. To do this, they gave 
a visual demonstration of what the farms 
of the state were even then producing, 
and the pioneer fair in Musical Hall 
marked the beginning of an epoch. 

Though the exhibits were limited in 
number, and despite obstacles and handi- 
caps, that first state fair scored world- 
wide publicity for California as a coming 
agricultural state. 

Encouraged by this response, greater 
plans were laid for the second annual fair 
held in Sacramento in 1855. It was at 
this fair that William Wolfskill first ex- 
hibited California oranges. He had but 
seven trees in bearing that year on his 
Los .\ngeles ranch and his total crop was 
worth but $700. Vet, the state fair gave 
him an opportunity to show that Cali- 
fornia was destined to become the leader 
in citrus fruit production. Today we have 
the proof — an annual orange crop valued 
at $75,000,000! 

I'or the next three years the stale fair 
traveled from city to city — Marysville. 
San Jose, Stockton, but in 185" it was 
considered essential to give it a perman- 
ent home and develop an adetjuate plant 
with suitable facilities. Sacramento, the 
capital, was selected and for a number 
of years the exposition was held in a 
pavilion at Sixth and M streets— in the 
■'heart of the city." 

The present plant, located along Stock- 
ton Boulevard, represents a value of

man indicates a "hand to mouth" buying 
of all lines. 

Aside from the humanitarian interest 
in the struggles of their fellowmen to 
make a living, the San Francisco mer- 
chants must be vitally concerned with the 
conditions that brought about the depres- 
sion in the grape industry and even more 
so in the steps now being taken by the 
growers to bring about the rehabilitation 
of their profession — one of California's 
greatest agricultural assets. 

Post-war plantings of grapes expanded 
the acreage from 323,000 in 1910 to 650, 
000 in 1928 with an increase of ship- 
ments from 16,358 cars in 1918 to "4,000 
in 1928. The resulting sudden increase in 
grape production, unaccompanied by any 
orderly system of distribution or attempt 
to establish a proportionate consumer de- 
mand for grapes through advertising and 
trade promotion, brought forth a market- 
ing chaos and a consequent low level of 
prices. 

Picture, if you can, the furniture manu- 
facturers of Grand Rapids and Rockford 
shipping their output into the marketing 
centers of the nation without considering 
the capacity of these cities to absorb 
their product. Imagine these manufac- 
turers continuing to forward more cars of 
furniture to these points when they knew 
terminals were already blocked with un- 
loaded cars. Instead of furniture the 
product has been a perishable fruit, which 
must be consumed in a fresh state not 
later than four weeks after it is picked 
from the vine. With this picture you 
have a slight conception of the causes 
that dragged down the price level of Cali- 
fornia grapes. 

The California Vineyardists Associ- 
ation came into being as an attempt to 
bring order out of this production and 
distribution chaos. It is a voluntary 
association of growers organized for ser- 
vice work along the lines of a trade 
association. Its backbone is a clearing 
house composed of California shippers 
which, with the aid of the U. S. Market 
News Service, indicates to these shippers 
from daily tabulations of arrivals, un- 
loads and track holdings those markets in 
which there is an active consumer de- 
mand and the points which are already 
overloaded with grape supplies. This is 
done in an endeavor to minimize market 
gluts and to raise the price return from 
grape shipments. 

E.xtensive research was immediately 
undertaken to learn the facts of the prob- 
lem and at the end of a few months the 
Association was in a position authorita- 
tively to point out the causes for the de- 
pression within the grape industry. The 
first years of its operation were success- 
ful in a limited way but being clothed 
only with advisory powers it could not 
control the unruly and unscrupulous ele- 
ments among the shippers and conse- 
quently the distribution of California 



[ continued from page 1 1 ] 

grapes in the market centers of the na- 
tion continued woefully inefficient. 

Another condition aggravating the 
economic status of the grape grower is 
the fact that the muscat, essentially a 
raisin grape, has been shipped into the 
fresh market in tremendous quantities, 
glutting the terminals not only for the 
muscat growers themselves, but also for 
the growers of other table and juice vari- 
eties. Some 14,000 tons of muscats have, 
in this manner, consistently lowered re- 



turns to all raisin and fresh grape pro- 
ducers during past seasons. 

During the fall of 1928, the grower 
Board of Directors of the California 
Vineyardists Association realized the 
futility of attempting to direct the distri- 
bution of some 70,000 cars of fresh Cali- 
fornia grapes without proper authority. 
It sought from the growers the power of 
supervision over the loading of juice 
grapes and the distribution of table

THE WORLD KNOWS THAT 

"BUILT BY BUICK" 

MEANS BUILT SUPERLATIVELY WELL 

Motorists everywhere know that the newBuick, recently introduced, 

marks a strong advance over all previous standards in the Buick 

field, and are welcoming it with an enthusiasm never 

before manifested for any fine car. 



It has often been said that Buick 
. . . and the great army of men and 
women who purchase Buick mo- 
tor cars . . . are not merely buyer 
and seller, hut friends. 

Just how deep and strongthis 
friendship is — and how diligently 
Buick labors to merit it — is dem- 
onstrated by the character of the 
new Buick car and the reception 
it is enjoying. 

Millions have visited Buick show- 
rooms in all parts of America dur- 
ing the past few days. Others are 
steadily coming to see the new 
Buick. Scores of thousands have 
requested or already taken dem- 
onstrations. And everywhere the 
story is the same — 

Not only the warmest welcome 
ever accorded any quality car . . . 



not only the kindliest expressions 
of praise for Buick improvements 
and ad\ancements . . . but a great 
outpouring of orders, more than 
double the record of any other 
automobile priced above $1200. 

Men and women have pronounced 
this new Buick the greatest Buick 
of them all — and are awarding it 
what promises to be a record de- 
mand. 

The builders of Buick and Mar- 
quette gladly acknowledge a debt 
of gratitude, and pledge continued 
precision in the manufacture of 
both Buick and Marquette cars, 
that motorists may always know 
that "Built by Buick" means 
built superlatively well.

This is the telephone's job and goal 

The United States is developing a new civilization. 
The telephone is an indispensable element in it. The 
Bell System is building ahead of the growth of this 
civilization. In 1929 the telephone budget for land 
and buildings is 54 million dollars, with new build- 
ings rising in 200 cities. New equipment for central 
offices will cost I42 millions; exchange lines 120 mil- 
lions; toll lines 119 millions. 

The Bell System's total expenditure for plant and 
service improvements this year will be ^^^ij mil- 
lion dollars. 

This outlay is required because the telephone is a 
universal servant of this democracy. BiLsiness uses 
it to create more prosperity. Homes use it for com- 
fort and protection, for keeping friendships alive 
and enriching life. Its general use enables each per- 
sonality toextenditself without r.-gard todistance. 

The telephone ideal is that anyone, anywhere, 
shall be able to talk quickly and at reasonable cost 
with anyone, anywhere else. There is no standing 
still in the Bell System.

History ^/Our 
State Fair 

I continued from page 24 ) 

$2,500,000 and a development program 
now under way will add $1,500,000 more. 
It is an ideal setting for '■California's 
Show Window" where our own citizens 
and thousands from other states and 
countries may see the remarkable diver- 
sity of the Golden State's production. 

The fair this year, approaching a na- 
tional ex]30sition in scope and impor- 
tance, will set new records in every de- 
partment. The great horticultural pavi- 
lion in which 55 of California's 58 coun- 
ties will show their choice products and 
leading resources, all strikingly arranged 
in colorful, attractive booths, will be a 
picture of unsurpassed beauty. Close by 
will be the Western Exposition Building 
housing the gorgeous displays of Oregon, 
Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming 
and the Republic of Mexico. In this 
building, too, will be a feature exhibit 
from the California farm of President 
Hoover. California appreciates sincerely 
the interest manifested by her neighbors 
and their fine spirit of co-operation in 
joining with her in the Diamond Jubilee. 
It is through such a spirit that the West 
will continue its triumphant march of 
progress. 

Another building is given over to edu- 
cational displays. Here will be seen the 
greatest demonstration of school activi- 
ties in the nation's history. More than 
2000 California schools will be represent- 
ed with an amazing array of exhibits from 
kindergarten to polytechnic schools. 
Truly, this is an exposition within an 
exposition. 

A leading feature of the California 
State Fair has always been its livestock 
division. The founders of the fair did not 
overlook the importance of this phase of 
the state's development, and in 1854 
while the agricultural and mineral prod- 
ucts were displayed in Musical Hall ar- 
rangements were made for a cattle show 
at the old mission. How they would 
marvel, now. to see how well they laid 
the foundation! From all parts of 
America, the finest cattle, horses, sheep, 
swine and other stock are assembled at 
Sacramento for the annual state fair. 
And in passing it may be stated that 
these animals, together with our Cali- 
fornia stock, have shown themselves ca- 
pable of winning highest honors at the 
world's greatest shows. 

At the earlier fairs horse racing was a 
great attraction. Old timers are still 
thrilled at mention of the names of "Occi- 
dent" and "Goldsmith Maid." After a lull 
of several years, the pacers and trotters 
are again commanding attention and 
visitors to the Jubilee Fair will be treated 
to some excellent exhibitions. A compar- 
atively recent development which also 
brings ribbon-winning horseflesh into 
prominence, is the State Fair horse show.

grapes to market. A recent canvass of 
grape growers throughout the state has 
resulted in giving to the Association the 
authority to thus control the movement 
of grape tonnage. This is accomplished 
by issuing a daily program to the shipper 
members of the Clearing House Division 
and requiring that the recommendations 
therein be strictly observed. 

With an agricultural relief measure 
grinding through the legislative mills of 



Congress, the grape situation assumed an 
entirely new phase. Already in March, 
1929, Congress was working on legislation 
to assist various agricultural groups to 
put their industries on a business basis. 
Donald D. Conn, managing director of 
the California Vineyardists Association, 
and Lloyd S. Tenny, its vice-president, 
were in Washington in close conference 
with congressional committees and heads 
of executive departments, prominent na- 
tional bankers and agricultural authori- 
ties. Weeks before the actual passage of 
the bill, they brought with them to Cali- 
fornia the set-up adaptable to the Cali- 
fornia grape industry and conforming to 
the proposed Farm Relief Bill, which

The California grape industry through 
its three largest cooperatives, the Cali- 
fornia \'ineyardists Association, the Sun- 
Maid Raisin Association, and the Cali- 
fornia Fruit Exchange, has organized the 
Federal Fruit Stabilization Corporation 
to present its case before the Federal 
Farm Board at Washington. On the 
Board of Directors of the Stabilization 
Corporation are some of the state's most 
successful growers. Financial interests 
are also represented but the grower ele- 
ment is greatly in predominance. Lloyd 
S. Tenny, vice-president of the Califor- 
nia Vineyardists Association and former 
Chief of the United States Bureau of 
Agricultural Economics, has been elected 
president, and his wide e.xperience as a 
grower and as a government official, tits 
him admirably for this important post. 

Through Air. Tenny. the grape grower 
is now presenting his case at Washington 
before the Farm Relief Board. That tri- 
bunal is being told that financial assist- 
ance under the wise guidance of the Gov- 
ernment will enable the California grape 
grower to establish his huge industry on 
a firm business basis by eliminating the 
factors that have brought about periodic 
gluts in market centers with their result- 
ing wastes. 

The stabilization plan as applied to the 
Cahfornia vineyard industry embraces 
the outright purchase of raisin grapes — 
the muscat, sultanas and Thompsons at 
good prices for a three-year period, and 
the shipment of onh- that portion of 
muscats into the fresh market that meet 
existing consumer demand. These raisin 
grapes arc purchased by the Federal 
Grape Stabilization Corjioration — the 
agency authorized by growers and recog- 
nized by the Federal Farm Board at 
Washington. The grower of other fresh 
varieties is thereby enabled lo ship into 
a balanced market and in return for the 
whole program, he is required to pay a 
small fee. the proceeds of which is lo 
cover the handling charges in connection 
with the raisin purchase and to establish 
a "good faith" fund upon which to make 
further loans from the Government for 
the operations of the T'ederal Stabiliza- 
tion Corporation. 

With the stabilization of the grape in- 
dustry effected, the merchants of the San 
Francisco Bay region can look to an up- 
ward trend toward the volume of business 
that made the San Joaquin \'alley of 
former years California's white spot — 
both in the volume of its purchases and 
the surety of its credits. The per capita 
purchasing power of the fresh grape Am] 
raisin grower may never again reach the 
heights of 102I and 1022, but slabili/ed 
grape production and distribulioii will 
re-create a reasonably protitable xineyani 
industry at the very iloors of San l-'raii- 
cisco and its wholesaler and retailer will 
share the benefits as well as the producers 
ihemseKes.

HARBOR DAY 

[ continued from page 2tj ] 

ager of the Panama-Pacific Line got down 
to brass tacks immediately. 

" 'Harbor Day' is not going to be a 
day for us to boast about our harbor," 
Captain Donavin declared, "but a day for 
serious reflection on the obligations we 
have in keeping the harbor up to stand- 
ards nature provided at the outset. The 
Panama Line thought enough of it to 
build three ships costing fifty million dol- 
lars. We think trade is growing and we 
want to be ready. As the situation now 
stands the dock at which we are standing 
is not adequate for our needs. What is 
the situation going to be when we double 
our service? How about the future? This 
condition is not due to the slightest degree 
to the officials, but to the people. No 
official can act without policies coming 
from the people. When the Junior Cham- 
ber sponsored 'Harbor Day' it was with 
the idea of bringing the harbor up to 
the standard it should be. Count the 
Panama Pacific Lina in. I think we should 
all get behind it and put this harbor on 
the map." 

Captain Donavin's terse remarks were 
followed by an equally frank statement 
from Captain Manley Hale Simons, act- 
ing commandant of the Twelfth Naval 
District. "When the people come down 
to the waterfront on 'Harbor Day,' they 
should know that they are coming down 
to help make the harbor in every respect 
the finest in the world. Nature provided 
this harbor and designed it as the finest 
in the world. When I was a boy I went 
out to Bombay. They took all the young 
officials and showed them the water- 
fronts. Across from the waterfront were 
series of parks, trees am" palms, which 
they had laid out in anticipation of the 
trade to come in. In San Francisco you 
should level down the board houses. 
When people put anything up, they 
should put up something concrete for 
permanency. Now on 'Harbor Day' just 
what you propose to do should be put

in the minds of the people — tell them 
what it is all about. The Navy is 100% 
behind you in anything you do to improve 
the harbor. This harbor as far as the 
Navy is concerned is the key to the Far 
East. If there ever is any trouble with 
the far eastern countries everything will 
go out of San Francisco, as a Navy supply 
base. Everything will have to be built 
here."

NORTHWESTERN 



PACIFIC 



The entire membership of the Junior 
Chamber headed by President Arthur M. 
Brown. Jr.. is lending its efforts to make 
"Harbor Day" the most spectacular 
undertaking ever sponsored by the Junior 
Chamber. 

The program for "Harbor Day" calls 
for a parade from the Civic Center to the 
Ferry Building as the opening feature. 
Supervisor Milo F. Kent will be grand 
marshal of the procession which starts at 
11:30 a. m. from the Civic Center. The 
line of march will run down Market 
Street to Montgomery, along that street, 
formerly the city's waterfront and now 
the "Wall Street of the West." and thence 
to California Street, the shipping center 
of the Pacific Coast, to the Ferry Build- 
ing where the reviewing stand will be 
located. It is hoped that in the stand 
will be Governor C. C. Voung and 
Hawaii's new governor. Lawrence M. 
Judd. who has been invited to attend. 

.Aviators basing at Mills Field by in- 
vitation of Supervisor Kent. Chairman 
of the city's airport committee, will stunt 
over the waterfront in the early after- 
noon. Naval, commercial and army 
planes will take part. Crews from the 
American and foreign ships will partici- 
pate in the merchant marine life boat 
race to be held south of the Ferry Build- 
ing. The Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corpo- 
ration is giving a handsome trophy for 
the winning crew in this event, similar to 
the annual Neptune Association Cup race 
rowed as a classic each year in New 'V'ork 
Harbor. 

Yacht races, directed by Al Young, on 
the Marina ; a marine parade marshaled 
by .Mec Paladini ; fireworks on a barge 
anchored just north of the Ferry: open 
house on all vessels and special receptions 
on some: open house on the battle fleet, 
which will give an electrical display in the 
evening — these are some of the features 
of "Harbor Day." 



Guided by Miss Yeda B. Young, secre- 
tary of the Playground Commission. San 
Francisco youngsters are engaged in a 
model ship and miniature-harbor compe- 
tition. Judging will be held on the floor 
of the Marine E.xchange. August 21, and 
prizes awarded "Harbor Day." 

On August 21 also, the Junior Chamber 
of Commerce wiU hold a "Harbor Day"' 
luncheon. 

Yachting costume has been designated 
as official "Harbor Day" attire by Mayor 
James Rolph. Jr.. so don't be surprised to 
see staid citizens patroling the Embarca- 
dero on "Harbor Day " clad in white caps 
and flannel trousers. It's the style fashion 
of a day that promises to be an annual 
event in San Francisco of which once — 
but no more — it was written ; 

"Serene, indifferetit to fate 

Stands the city by the Golden Gate."

A Subway System y^r San Francisco 



to what extent the subway has brought 
about rapid transportation in these active 
cities. Even Los Angeles with its mile 
long subway gives Hollywood and other 
neighboring towns an important time- 
saving exit from the congested section of 
the city. 

Our Market Street lends itself most 
admirably as the main artery of a subway 
system. A cross-town line under Third 
and Kearny and another under Van Ness 
Avenue would form an ideal nucleus for 
further expansion as the city grows. 
Egress must be provided for such lines 
as McAllister, Hayes. Haight, etc., and 
the main subway and its branches may 
terminate at a desirable point in a manner 
to provide egress for the cars to continue 
on the surface to final destinations. 

In an undertaking of this magnitude, 
the writer has no desire, nor does he feel 
competent to intrude in the province of 
the engineer or the financier. There 
should be no question but that no unsur- 
mountable obstacles would confront 
these phases of the project. 

In prospect, let us indulge ourselves in 
a brief vision of the consummation of 
the project and some of its outstanding 
benefits. 

First, let us look at the transformation 
of Market Street. The four tracks re- 



[ continued from page 1.5] 

moved means one of our greatest hazards 
and contributing causes for traffic con- 
gestion eliminated. Now a magnificent, 
wide, unobstructed thoroughfare — a 
street to be talked of around the world. 
Van Ness Avenue also cleared of tracks, 
which never should have been a perma- 
nency, and maybe a sightly strip of 
curbed lawn or garden down its center to 
separate north and south traffic. To ac- 
commodate short distance surface traffic 
on main streets provide a line of com- 
fortable riding pneumatic-tired motor 
coaches. Kearny and Third streets freed 
of their car tracks will become fine thor- 
oughfares with much of the present con- 
gestion eliminated. Note what has hap- 
pend to Montgomery Street. 

With the absence of surface cars, motor 
traffic controlled by the present signal 
system should be materially speeded up 
as is done on Fifth Avenue, New York; 
Michigan Boulevard, Chicago, and Wil- 
shire Boulevard, Los Angeles, where the 
20-mile limit has long since found its way 
to the discard and 35-40 miles is the rule 
rather than the exception. 

Without doubt the engineers would 
plan the main artery to provide four 
tracks: two of these for "local" or more 
frequent stops, and the others for rapid 
"express" service, stopping at lesser in- 



tervals. This system of operation would 
prove a boon to those living at a distance 
and could be made of distinct benefit to 
Peninsula residents. 

The construction of the subway might 
lend itself to establishing a number of 
public convenience stations — something 
sadly lacking now. Also the "under pass" 
providing safe pedestrian crossing of 
main thoroughfares at important inter- 
sections. Even the City of Mexico has 
officially adopted these latter.

Metropolitan 
Area

within this area can reach the business 
district of the central cities within one 
hour's travel time. 

With the State University at Berkeley, 
eleven degree colleges in San Francisco, 
the State Teachers' College at San Jose. 
Stanford University at Palo Alto. Alills 
College at Oakland, and a number of 
private schools in the vicinity of Kent- 
lield and San Rafael, it is a common 
practice to find students commuting from 
the central cities to these institutions of 
learning. 

.\s a further indication of the social 
relations of this area, it is not uncom- 
mon among those living in the central 
cities to spend their time away from busi- 
ness in the many places of interest 
scattered through the entire area from 
the Russian River on the north to Santa 
Cruz and Monterey on the south, and 
those who live in the out-lying districts 
freciuently indulge themselves in the ex- 
clusive shops and theatres available in 
the larger central cities. 

Five state highway arteries leading 
from the extremities to the center of this 
region have been checked for uaily motor 
vehicle traffic and reveal a minimum of 
two thousand cars on each of the high- 
ways at the outer edge, accumulating to 
as high as eleven thousand in thi central 
cities. On the secondary hichwT>s the 
average is around thirty-live hundred at 
the point of contar: with the central 
cities. 

The labor conditions throughout the 
entire region are inlluenccd by the central 
cities. In many cases the trade wage 
scales are uniform throughjut the en- 
tire area with very slight reductions 
where living conditions will permit. For 
instance, in the carpenters' trade the 
scale is $S to $0 per day in San Fran- 
cisco and Oakland, $S in Colusa outside 
the north boundary, and S'S at Hol- 
lisler outside the southern boundary. The 
general employment conditions in the 
entire region are effected by the move- 
ment of the labor from the lielcls to the 
factories and vice versa as the needs 
change with the season. 

Considering this region from a manu- 
facturing point of view, over $1,100,000,- 
000 worth of manufactured products are 
produced annually in this area. It is a 
common practice to lind that the main 
factory and head(]uarters are located in 
the central cily with branch plants in out- 
lying sections and contrarily. .X number 
of large key industries have their plants 
established in the outlying districts and 
their headquarters in the central cities. 
The California Packing Corporation with 
a main office and factory in San Fran- 
cisco has branches in San Jose, Cilroy, 
.'^anla Rosa, Healdsburg, Petaluma. /Vnli- 
och, and Pittsburg. The National Ice & 



Cold Storage Company and the Pratt- 
Lowe Canning & Preserving Company are 
also in this class. Representing the second 
classification are the Great Western 
Chemical Company, the Columbia Steel 
Corporation, the Pioneer Rubber Com- 
pany, the Redwood Manufacturing Com- 
pany, and others with plants at Pitts- 
burg and offices in San Francisco. The 
oil refineries along the upper bay and 
the California Hawaiian Sugar Refinery 
at Crockett, the Pacific Portland Cement 
Company at Redwood City, the Arden 
Salt Company in the South Bay Area, 
and the Belding-Heminway Company at 
Petaluma all have headquarters and sales 
and purchasing offices in San Francisco. 

On all the railroads leading out of the 
central cities freight class rates to the out-

lying communities are the same as the 
rates within the contiguous cities on the 
same route. The area affected by these 
freight rates is circumscribed by the 
cities of Cotati, Shellville, and Tolenas 
on the north, slightly beyond Tracy on 
the east, and Coyote and Wright on the 
south. 

Large power companies in Northern 
California operate throughout the nine 
counties and maintain similar rate sched- 
ules as far as Santa Rosa and Calistoga 
on the north and Newman and Coyote 
on the south. Power rates are the same 
with the exception of a very minor in- 
crease in the first ten kilowatt hours out- 
side of the central cities. Telephone rates 
mav be divided into two classifications —

from San Rafael to the central cities on 
the north, Lafayette on the east, and Bel- 
mont on the south, station to station calls 
can be made for ISc. The second zone 
takes in Petaluma and Napa on the north, 
Antioch on the east, and San Jose and 
Saratoga on the south for a charge of 35c. 

Circulation of the newspapers printed 
in the central cities serves as one of the 
best indications of the contacts with the 
surrounding communities. Five San 
Francisco daily papers were shown to 
have distribution on the San Francisco 
peninsula at the rate of one to every two 
families, in the northern section one to 
every three families, in the eastern sec- 
tion one to every four families, and in the 
southern section one to every three fami- 
lies, with fringe cities running as low as 
from one to six families. 

Retail department stores in the central 
cities will deliver retail purchases free of 
charge to any postoffice throughout the 
nine counties. 

Several banking institutions with 
headquarters in San Francisco now have 
branch banks at numerous points 
throughout the area extending to Santa 
Rosa on the north and beyond the eastern 
boundary including Modesto and Los 
Banos, and on the south, Gilroy. 

The reconnaissance of this area fore- 
tells that the 1930 San Francisco-Oakland 
Metropolitan area should include a con- 
siderably larger area than in 1920, if it is 
to be compatible with conditions as they 
are now and will be during the ten years 
beyond 1930. 

Thus a resolution directed to the Di- 
rector of Census was passed by the San 
Francisco and Oakland Chambers of 
Commerce, stating that: "Whereas, the 
present San Francisco-Oakland Metro- 
politan Area, as recognized by the United 
States Bureau of Census, is not sufficient- 
ly extensive to comprehend the total de- 
veloped area of San Francisco Bay com- 
munities: and whereas, the San Fran- 
cisco Bay area comprising one economic 
unit is composed of portions of nine 
counties which front on this bay; now, 
therefore, be it resolved that, in the in- 
terests of all the communities around San 
Francisco Bay, the Director of the Bu- 
reau of Census be requested to extend 
the boundary line of the San Francisco- 
Oakland Metropolitan Area to include 
the nine counties of: Alameda, Contra 
Costa, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, Santa 
Clara, San Francisco, Solano, and So- 
noma. 

"Be it further resolved that if, in the 
opinion of the Bureau of Census, the 
rural areas of these counties should be 
separated from the urban and industrial 
sections fronting on the bay, the newly 
determined boundary line should be 
drawn as to comprehend within the 
Metropolitan Area all urban and Indus- 
trial Development on the San Francisco 
Bay littoral which is made up of portions 
of the nine counties above mentioned."

demand for quick turnovers. After we 
made a careful study of the territory we 
wished to serve, we decided that" San 
Francisco would be the most advanta- 
geous point from which to distribute our 
product. We are having equipped here 
the most modern offices of any shoe house 
on the Pacific Coast, which, w'ith the addi- 
tion of the shipping facilities, occupy the

This company has leased for a term of 
years, the 6-story building at ol7-olQ 
Mission Street, at the corner of New 
Montgomery Street, which contains 
40.000 square feet of floor space. Mr, 
Fithian also stated that he will spend 
about nine-tenths of his time in San 
Francisco, and that it is the intention of 
his company to carry an open stock 
valued at about $o06,000 in different 
widths and styles which are adapted to 
the trade throughout this territory. 

_ This new distributing branch will fur- 
ni.sh employment to from thirty to forty 
people which constitute salesmen, office 
and warehouse employees.

This company will, in about two monlhs. 
move to the new building at 1237 Minne-

proximately 20.000 square feet of floor 
space will he occupied, and it is antici- 
pated thai proiiuction will be increased

point. Instead, the Radio Show will open 
its doors to a pubHc eager to investigate 
and to acquire the best that can be had 
within the range of their purses. 

Last year's Radio Show ushered in a 
season of marked activity in radio sales 
on the Pacific Coast. There was un- 
questionable evidence of the part played 
by the Radio Show in stimulating that 
condition. This year, with the show pre- 
senting a vastly superior array of ex- 
hibits, it is easy to predict a still greater 
impetus. 

Every feature of the 1929 Radio Show 
has been made to conform to a high 
standard of artistic excellence. Decora- 
tive and lighting effects have been de- 
signed to blend in a harmonious picture. 
The entertainment which will be pre- 
sented continuously at the show studio 
will represent the finest talent that the 
participating broadcasters can assemble. 

Favorite radio entertainers, appearing 
personally at the show, will take part in 
a radiant series of specially prepared 
programs. From the standpoint of en- 
tertainment, the Radio Show can be ex- 
pected to surpass anything of the kind 
ever attempted. 

Essentially, however, the show will be 
an exposition of the radio industry at a 
point of development that will be re- 
membered as one of the milestones of 
radio history.

Among the first of the new type of

fireproof brick structure to accommodate 
the crowds witnessing the afternoon and 
evening feature programs. The afternoon 
horse races are interspersed with thrilling 
and spectacular acts which are repeated 
at night, together with a brilliant display 
of fireworks. Music by bands and or- 
chestras, a midway, and open-air dance 
platform provide the means of still 
further entertainment. 

Thus, out of that small beginning in 
1S54 has grown a great annual e.xposition 
and celebration which holds interest for 
everyone, whether from the country or 
from the city. And, as in the earliest 
days, the State Fair still continues to be 
California's greatest single advertising 
medium. 

The Fair is administered by state 
officials and is held under state auspices. 
It belongs to all the people of California 
and to be of greatest service to the state 
it must have the support and co-operation 
of all citizens and groups of citizens. 

This support and interest is becoming 
more and more evident, with the result 
that the fair is consistently bigger and 
better each year. The Diamond Jubilee 
Fair, marking a milestone in California's 
progress, gives every promise of being a 
brilliant success.

A Subway System 

[ continued from page 31 ] 

In the East, big stores and hotels con- 
sider it an advantage to provide a subway 
entrance in their buildings. Several large 
office structures also adopt this policy as 
a convenience to their tenants and visi- 
tors. 

In facing this question, might we not 
profitably emulate the example set by the 
city of New York, where they are ac- 
customed to tackle big things in a big 
way and without hesitancy. There, plans 
are now being prepared for additional 
subways estimated to cost considerably 
over $100,000,000, a figure well calcu- 
lated to stagger any community. Not so 
New York, however, which in addition to 
this project has also in hand a bridge 
over the Hudson, the largest suspension 
bridge in the world, a double vehicular 
tube at "The Narrows," and another 
tunnel under the East River. Funds for 
these enormous projects will be readily 
available, as many years' experience has

shown New York that rapid transporta- 
tion attracts capital and pays many times 
over. In fine, it is vital to progress and 
prosperity. San Francisco can profitably 
absorb a little of that spirit. 

Chicago, another great city, is clamor- 
ing for a subway system. The people have 
voted for it, but "political expediency" 
has thus far barred any definite progress 
towards its consummation. In this con- 
nection, witness the permanent slogan 
of the Tribune, one of the most promi- 
nent newspapers of the country — "First: 
Make Chicago the first city in the world." 
"Second: Start the subway," etc. It is 
interesting to see that the subway is con- 
sidered only second in importance. 

As Chicago was the cradle of the ele- 
vated system of transportation, it is signi- 
ficant to note now the definite turning 
from this type of transportation to the 
subway. In New York, there is at pres- 
ent a move to do away with the Sixth 
Avenue elevated as unsightly, noisy, 
dirty, decidedly ruinous to property val- 
ues and detrimental to all business in its 
vicinity. 

This condition is found to exist wher- 
ever the elevated is used and should fur- 
nish ample argument for barring it from 
our streets. At best it can only be classed 
as a makeshift and a relic of a bygone 
period. 

San Francisco heretofore recognized 
as a leader, if it would hold its position 
must not lag in its responsibility in this 
matter. Any system chosen to provide 
fast, economical transportation will take 
several years to complete and put into 
operation. It means a big job — some- 
thing radical — and must be approached 
fearlessly and with due regard for its 
enormity and necessity. 

It is New York's traditional go ahead 
spirit which makes great cities greater 
and attracts new capital and added popu- 
lation. Eventually the subway must come 
— unnecessary delay is uneconomic and 
costly. When the engineers' report is re- 
leased, San Francisco must earnestly, 
vigorously and unitedly get behind the 
subway project.

The fact that goods may be delivered 
more quickly from local factories with a 
shorter period of investment in merchan- 
dise and a more rapid turnover has been 
brought to the attention of these large 
store buyers. Other points which have 
been called to buyers' attention include 
the facts that style goods can be devel-

oped locally to meet local needs, and that 
these services will improve as they are 
patronized. 

Resulting from these talks, each of the 
above stores has adopted the following 
policy cards which are to be posted in the 
offices of its buyers: 

"The Chamber of Commerce and this store 
are working together to promote San Fran- 
cisco's industries. They have agreed on the 
policy that 

'Quality, service and price being equal. 
it is good business to buy as close to 
home as possible.' 
"Have you investigated whether you can 
place your order at home? 

(Signed by Store Name.)" 

Through the adoption of this policy by- 
leading stores of the city, the complaint 
of the small town retailer that San Fran- 
cisco-made merchandise is not sold in San 
Francisco is broken down and out-of- 
town sales can be made more easily. 

This work is a part of a carefully 
planned campaign which is to be carried 
throughout the trade territory by per- 
sonal calls on the part of the Domestic 
Trade Commissioner. Through these 
calls, it is expected that new friends may 
be made for San Francisco, the market 
center, and that increased demands may 
be developed for San Francisco-made 
and merchandised goods. 

In this work, as in the local work, the 
committee is bearing in mind the thought 
that they must visualize a broader field 
than merely selling local goods. Accord- 
ingly, they will assist the outside com- 
munities to increase their sales to San 
Francisco and assist in any other possible 
manner. 

.\s the result of this concentrated work 
on the part of the Chamber of Commerce, 
San Francisco's industrial advantages 
will be further increased, for the indus- 
trialist will know that our interest does 
not stop when he locates here. We in- 
tend to see that he not only selects San 
Francisco but also that he succeeds.

^Mi Years Is a 

Long Time 



Here's the point — Most any nieehanical substitute 
for ice represents an initial expenditure equal to the 
total ice bills of the average California family for 
12 long years. And that doesn't take into considera- 
tion the cost of current. 

Ice costs little and does a complete refrigerator job. 
It not only gives amply low temperature but this 
vital ''something more" — a constant circulation of 
clean, ice-freshened air that keeps food fresh and at 
their flavory best. 

Ice is the ONLY method of refrigeration that does 
not dry out food. Why be extravagant and buy an 
expensive substitute for ice that fails in this vital 
particular. 

Your ice company will sell you one of the handsome 
and efficient new ice boxes at half old time prices. 

There is no SAFE substitute for

[ continued from page 9 ] 

Considering the future development of 
this metropohtan market, present indices 
indicate that the business is increasing at 
the rate of approximately 8 per cent per 
annum. 

IMMEDL\TE MARKET 
756.000 people or 189.000 famihes live 
m San Francisco, the all-year market, 
with retail sales amounting to over $442,- 
174.000 annually. .Annual sales at whole- 
sale in San Francisco amount to 1.4 bil- 
lion dollars according to the last survey. 

There are 8.624 retail establishments 
and 2. 788 wholesale establishments. Fif- 
teen hundred national concerns maintain 
factory branches, branch factories, or 
Pacitic Coast headquarters in San Fran- 
cisco. Four transcontinental railroads 
and lis steamship hnes join in San Fran- 
cisco. Many of these companies purchase 
in San Francisco. 

2086 manufacturing establishments are 
located in San Francisco with an addi- 
tional 16S7 manufacturers located in the 
other zones of the metropolitan market, 
many of which maintain their purchasing 
and sales offices in San Francisco. The 
total increase in volume of business done 
in San Francisco during the five-year 
period ending December. 1928, ranges 
from 26 to 61 per cent above a similar 
five-year period just preceding. 

The Pacific Coast is growing more 
rapidly than the United States. The rate 
of population increase of the Pacific 
Coast is two times faster than the United 
States. California 2.4 times, and San 
Francisco 3.4 times. 

San Francisco in the center of the 
Pacific Coast is unexcelled as a popula- 
tion, manufacturing, distribution, and 
market center.

The Around-Pacific Cruise was spon-

Francisco Chamber of Commerce, and 
when its purpose was understood the 
response was spontaneous. The Cham-

of the cruise to the American Express 
Company, and an official of that or-

its personnel embodied the finest group 
of American business men ever gotten 
together in such a project. 

The San Francisco Chamber of Com- 
merce believes in standards, and when 
it initiated the Around-Pacific Cruise 
it was with a profound sense of re- 
sponsibility that the members of its 
party must be qualified to measure up 
abroad as Trustees for American Trade. 
This is not a pleasure trip or a sight- 
seeing junket. Its members are not go- 
ing for entertainment — and in fact would 
prefer not to be entertained. They are 
not going with contract blanks, to talk 



about San Francisco or California or the 
Pacific Coast. 

They ARE going primarily to study 
the opportunities for the development 
of new markets — to determine how- 
American Business can best assist its 
neighbors in the extension of their 
trade, and to establish personal con- 
tacts that may lead to enduring friend- 
ships. 

As for the Chamber of Commerce, 
the Around-Pacific Cruise suggests a 
new extension of its vision and its 
grasp. It makes possible a new service 
to San Francisco and to the country.

PROMINENT SAN FRANCISCANS PUT FINAL 
TOUCHES ON PLANS FOR HARBOR DAY 




Bobby Jones May Come Here ! 



Much attention is being given by the 
daily press to San Francisco's lethargy in 
arranging an exhibition golf match fea- 
turing Bobby Jones. It will be encourag- 
ing to many ardent sports enthusiasts to 



SIR FRANCIS DRAKE sailed right by San Francisco Bay, never realizing what 
he was missing. That was back in the days of wind-buffeted galleons, when 
possession of the harbor behind the Golden Gate could easily have made 
England master of the Pacific. 
Today, thousands of San Franciscans live beside the harbor Sir Francis missed, 
and thousands more of commuters cross the bay every day, few of them realizing the 
tremendous part the port plays in their prosperity and happiness. 

San Francisco's first Harbor Day on August 22, sponsored by the Junior Chamber 
of Commerce, is designed to awaken residents of the bay cities to a proper apprecia- 
tion of their port — the port whose entrance is so appropriately named the "Golden 
Gate." 

Harbor Day is a day for all the public. With but few exceptions, all the piers 
along the Embarcadero, from North Beach to Channel Street, will be open. Visitors 
may sec great steamers from the Orient loading and discharging silk, tea, rattan, rub- 
ber and all the other products of the East. There will be ships from the South Seas 
and far-away .Australia and New Zealand; there will be vessels from Mexico, Central 
America and South America; from Europe, Africa, Alaska, the Atlantic Coast, 
Pacific Coast ports — everywhere. 
The finest ships ever built in the United States ply regularly in and out of San 
Francisco Bay. Steamships, motorships. 
electrically-driven ships— all varieties of 
the modern naval architect's art San 
Francisco can claim. And plans have 
been made to bring home to all the extent 
and importance o£ the shipping and its 
affiliated industries within the Golden 
Gate. 

Holph Issues Proclamation 

Mayor James Bolph, Jr., has issued au 
official proclamation appointing Tlmrs- 
day, August 22, as Harbor Day, while the 
State Board of Harbor Commissioners, 
shipping and labor officials have all 
united to give it their support. The day 
will be observed with open house by 
naval vessels and commercial ships in the 
harbor, yacht races, a marine parade, 
land parade, aviation stunts, swimming 
and lifeboat contests, dancing, and at 
night, fireworks and illumination of the 
battle fleet riding at anchor in man-n"-war 

At this point it is well to remember a 
few of the factors that make the harbor 
and city what it is. For San Francisco is 
the second largest port in the United 
States, being outranked in value of ini 
ports and exports only by New York it 
self, and standing second in number ol 
entrances and exits of passengers. Naval 
authorities have long characterized San 
Francisco Bay as the "finest land-locked 
full-sized harbor in the world." It is the 
principal port on the Pacific Coast of all 
the America's — North, Central and South. 

Recently San Francisco added to its 
prestige when the Matson Line put the 
Malolo into service between this port and 
Hawaii, thereby cutting the time to Hono- 
lulu from 6 to 4% days. Soon the A.sama 
Maru, finest and largest vessel ever built 
in Japan, will be in regular service to

Junior Chamber to bring Bobby to the

admirers who will not be able to make

Behind the curtain are scene shifters and "prop" jugglers whom the audience 
never see. No applause attends their efforts nor headlines sing their praise yet 
without them the show cannot Ko on. 

When Harbor Day's success is common conversation there will be a few whose 
prominent part in its consummation will receive recognition. But there are scores 
of others who have given unremuncrated hours and days to the seemingly trivial and 
mechanical details of the preparation. 

We call attention to this group as the underpinning of solid citizenry which 
Insures San Francisco of at least another fifty years of progress.

from the Presidio to the bay. 

There have been many conferences be-

Sports Committee Entertains Eastern 
Women Swimmers. 

A group of world famous women swim- 
mers from the Women's Swimming Asso- 
ciation of New York arrived in San Fran- 
cisco July 22 for a :i-day visit as guests 
of the Junior C.hamber of Commerce. 
They were en route to Honolulu to take 
part in the National Amateur Swimming 
Meet. 

The representation composed of .Misses 
Lisa Lundstrom. Agnes (ieraghty, Eleanor 
Holm, Adelaide Lambert, Kathryn Brown. 
Esther Foley, .lane Faunti!, Ethel Mc- 
Parry, Ceorgia Coleman, Olive Hatch, 
,\lbina OsipowicJi and Joan McSheeby un- 
der the cliaperonage of Mrs. .Margaret W. 
Johnson, were met at Third and Town- 
send Depot by the Sports Committee as 
official hosts for San Francisco, headed 
by Chairman Lloyd Dinkelspeil. Flowers 
furnished by the San Francisco Whole- 
sale Florists Association were presented. 

In true welcoming style and screeching 
of sirens, the party was speedily escorted 
through San Francisco's busy trafflc to 
the (jty Hall in automobiles furnished 
by the Chester N. Weaver Company. Here 
the girls were presented by President 
Arthur M. Brown, Jr.. assisted by Lloyd 
W. Dinkelspeil, Gerald O'C.ara and J. J. 
Tynan, to Ma.vor James Rolph, who wel- 
comed them in their visit to .San Fran- 
cisco and wished them luck in their com- 
ing meet. 



Bay Site May 
Yet Be Chosen 
For Bjimp Base 

.San l'"rancisco Bay may be the site of 
the Navy's new dirigible base soon to be 
established on the Paciflc Coast. If it is, 
this addition to the metropolitan area's 
aviation facilities will be due in no small 
measure to the activity of the Aeronautics 
Committee. 

The official gnvernment committee has 
come and gone . . . they came because of 
the intensive campaign waged to bring 
them to San Francisco and they have left 
with a large d<ieket of documents apper- 
taining to sites in the bay region. 

Through the efforts of the Aeronautics 
Committee of the .lunior Chamber and the 
cooperation of Congresswoman Florence 
Kahn, .San Francisco was included in the 
committee's itinerary of inspection. A 
highly successful luncheon was tendered 
the visiting committeemen and they were 
escorted in their various inspection lours 
about the bay region. The delegation was 
impressed with several sites and have 
asked that additional technical <latn con- 
cerning these be forwarded to them. 

The Aeronautics Committee, in aildi- 
tioii, secured the painting of huge mark- 
ers atop the Pacific das & Electric Com- 
pany's storage tanks on the Marina and 
in the Potrero district. 

Considerable time is being given by the 
committee to the campaign to establish the 
Curtiss Flying Service Held in .San Mateo 
County, ('omniitteemeii have approached 
Captain F. M. Bartlett of the Curtiss Fly- 
ing Service and Mr. A. F. Hockenbeamer, 
president of Pacillc (ias & Electric Com- 
pany, in an elfort to aid in ironing out 
some of the minor points of difference 
that still remain before establishment of 
the field can become a certainty. 



PUBLICITY GROWS 

BY "INCHES" 



"Very gratifying, indeed," was the com- 
ment of Chairman Jack Ciiveii in regard 
to the publicity report for July. 

The number of inches of space in San 
l''rancisco's live daily newspapers shows 
the power that the Junior Chamber of 
(jimmerce Is becoming in the city. Dur- 
ing July there were 1272 inches of pub- 
licity as compared with ■132 for June, 1929, 
and XtH for July of last year. 

This is equal to seven and three-quar- 
ters newspaper pages. .-\t a conservative 
estimate based on display advertising 
rates .such publicity would cost the Cham- 
ber at least *:t200. 

The committee is anticipating even 
greater results from the August report 
due to the splendid attention given to the 
Junior Chamber's staging of Harbor Day. 



SECTIONS TO BE FORMED 



The l:irgc lUiinIxT f)f Hctivities now pm- 
t^aficd in by thr Jiininr Chamber makes 
it lu'cessary and drsirabb* to enlist the 
aid of many more members than are now 
serving on committees. 

In order not to make the present groups 
too unwieldly a plan has been devised to 
Corm what will be known as sections. 
These will rjperate as advisory bodies 
collaborating at times with the commit- 
tees and supplementing their work. These 
sections will be organized gradually and 
groupings made according to preferences 
indicated on cards sent out several weeks 
ago. If you have not indicated a prefer- 
ence you may comnmnicate with Hal 
Hughes personally or by letter.

THE 

Around- Pacific 

CRUISE 

THE sailing of the Malolo on the twenty- 
first of this month, with more than three 
hundred American business leaders on 
board, will signalize not only the suc- 
cess of one of the most important projects under- 
taken recently by the San Francisco Chamber of 
Commerce, but will initiate an enterprise that 
must prove of inestimable value to American 
trade. 

It has been said many times that the great future 
of the Nation's commerce lies in the Pacific. That 
this future is now at hand is made manifest by the 
awakening of backward nations, and the conse- 
quent lifting of barriers that have made personal 
contact between them and ourselves most difficult. 

Our knowledge of many of the coiuitrics of the 
Far East, and of their opportunities for trade de- 
velopment has been limited by the kind of news 
that wc have received from them. 

Generally speaking that news has come to us 
only when there has been trouble — wars and racial 
uprisings. 

Primarily the purpose of the Around-Pacilic 
Cruise is to gather news — constructive news, the 
dis.scminalion of which can have no other ciTecl 
than to create a new understanding of our neigh- 
bors here at home, and a more friendly altitude 
toward us in those foreign countries. 

It is proijcr that San Francisco siioiild lake the 
lead in securing this information, and it is logical 
that liiis venture siiould have been initialed and 
carried Ihi'ougli hy the ('.li;iinl)rr (if (".oinnu'fi'c.

Chamber of Commerce 



AUL REVERE had more 
than one claim to fame 
in American history be- 
cause he not only made 
I the well-known and justly famous mid- 
night ride, but he also was one of the first 
currency engravers in the United States. 

The versatile Paul was the official en- 
graver for the provincial congress of 
Massachusetts in 1775 when he had charge 
of the issuance of the currency put out by 
that commonwealth. 

These facts are recalled in delving into 
the paper money situation as a result of 
I the issue of the new small currency. Heretofore 
I the transition from one type of currency to an- 
other has been slow and never revolutionary as 
was the case when Secretary 
Mellon announced that hereafter 
all American paper money would 
be of the new reduced size and 
more uniform in appearance. 

In fact, the issuance of paper 
money was a sort of hit-and-miss 
proposition up until the Civil 
War when the Government for 
the first time stepped into the 
breach and began issuing its own paper currency. 
Theretofore, the Federal Government had satisfied 
itself with the minting of metal coins, leaving the 
paper money market to other agencies. 





In the early days of our history, paper money 
was issued by the colonies and also by the Con- 
tinental Congress. Only part of this was engraved. 
The rest was printed, thus providing a counter- 
feiter's paradise, which was taken advan- 
tage of then to a larger extent than has 
ever been admitted, and which if permitted 
now, might well rock the financial foun- 
dations of even this super-rich country. 

From that time until the Civil War era, 
all of the currency in circulation was issued 
by state banks. This, of course, was worth- 
less if the bank ever closed its doors, which 
accounts for the temerity with which paper 
currency was accepted by many cautious persons 
up to a point as late as forty years ago when the 
financial stabihty of the United States became gen- 
erally recognized and no 
one dared look askance at 
a paper note without sub- 
jecting himself to ridi- 
cule. 

The manufacture of a pa- 
per medium of exchange, 
less bulky and therefore 
more convenient to handle 
than coins, has been a con- 
stant battle with the counterfeiter. As fast as 
Uncle Sam's experts would figure out a way of 
circumventing the illicit engraver, the engraver 
would figure out a new method of beating Uncle

COUNT HERMANN I-CEYSERLING, in 
Atlantic Monthly for September, sa^'s, 
"San Francisco is, of course, a thing in 
itself. Its atmosphere represents a de- 
lightful blend of the Far West and the Far East; 
it is the most attractive international seaport I 
know, and in centuries to come, when America 
shall have developed its own culture, it may play a 
part corresponding to that of Alexandria in Roman 
days — the Egyptian quality of Greek Alexandria 
being represented in San Francisco by tlie Chinese 
and Japanese, whicii foreign element forms an 
integral part of tiie atmosphere around tlie (lolden 
Gate. It has been a city of ease, if not of luxury,

Here is a student of peojjles, a renowned social 
pliilosopher, wiio, like many writers, artists and 
otiier notable visitors, senses and appreciates the 
life and beauty of San Francisco and the latent 
power of her coming development. In forecasting 
her future and ])iace in llie world, they may differ 
as to details, i)ul liiese critical ojjservers always 
agree tiiat San Francisco is destined to lie one of 
the very great international cities. l'ni(iiie, "a 
tiling in it.self," now and in liie fuliuc. 

The foundations for a great seaport city were 
laid Iiere by Nature, in tlie l)ay and its geograi)hi(al 
position, in liie suijporting i)ack country, and in 
tile climate. I'p in tlie liills gold was lodged to act 
as the magnet tlial would draw tlie right types of 
people to the future city at tbe proper time to give 
her a real and dramatic start. In tbe first year 
after Marsliall's find, 2r),(l()0 of Ibe liardiest and 
most adventurous jieople of tiiis ami dIIk r tonii- 
tries settled in San l-'raneisco. Since lluii Smi 
Francisco has grown by drawing lo lierscH' t^dud 
population elements for the development of lur 
character and power. Today she is one of tbe great 
cities, charming in her life aii<l personality, ap- 




pealing in her 
beauty and solid 
in her business. 
Anyone who

must have con- 
fidence in the fu-

He can see her

is forced to rec- 
ognize that a city

Her business is almost as varied as the needs of

tunities before her indicate the way she will go 
expanding, enriching, developing into one of the 
world's greatest centers. 



September 11, 1929 '^■■ 



Today San Francisco is growing and developing 
rapidly. The advertising of Californians Inc. is 
helping her do this. It is telling of life and oppor- 
tunity here and throughout northern and central 




California. This is attracting new people, new 
wealth and new business. 

For the last two years the population of San 
Francisco has been growing at the rate of 3000 
people a month. It has grown from 574,000 at the 
end of 1922 to 756,000 at the end of 1928. Now 
that growth is accelerated. It is due to the cumula- 
tive effect of the advertising, which started in 
November, 1922. 



And see what is happening in all the commun- 
ities of the bay area. San Mateo offers an example. 
Her population and real estate values have trebled 
in the last eight years. Today more than 1,600,000 
people live within one hour's ride of the Ferry 
Building at the foot of Market Street. This popu- 
lation is the most concentrated and prosperous on 
the Pacific Coast. 

The commerce of San Francisco Bay, second 
only to New York's in value, is now growing at a 
rate of $90,000,000 a year. Watch it grow faster 
from this time on, as 900,000,000 people living in 
countries bordering 
the Pacific develop 
modern wants and de- 
mand modern prod- 
ucts. With this in- 
crease is coming great 
industrial develop- 
ment all around the 
bay. 

While San Francisco 
is prominent in the 
national advertising of 
her advantages, she is 
not a "boosting" city 
in the sense that some 
cities are. Knowing 
her, one could no more 
think of her in that 
way than he could of 
London or New York. 
Her business men are 
too individualistic, in 
an atmosphere that is 
metropolitan and so- 
phisticated, to develop 
the required technique and mood. They are, how- 
ever, progressive civically. They get behind what- 
ever is good for the city. Understanding the value 
of the Californians Inc. advertising, for instance, 
they subscribed 99% of the last fund by mail, thus 
establishing a national record for such a commun- 
ity enterprise. 

The prosperity of San Francisco in her growth 
and the alert progressivism of her business men is 
plainly to be seen in a great deal of recent, fine 
development all over the city. A drive through the 
streets south of Market is a revelation in the num- 
ber of new industrial and other business structures 
erected to re-house old San Francisco firms. Of 
course, there is a large number of recent buildings 
housing new enterprises, but I am not dealing with 
that type of development at present, nor with new 
hotels, office buildings, apartment houses and 
other dwellings.

San Francisco to Welcome 



Bankers ^/America.

o 



^NE of the greatest national gatherings of 
the year will open in San Francisco on 
September 30 — the annual convention 
of the American Bankers Association. 
Tiie importance of the assemblage lies not only in 
the volume of attendance but in the widespread 
significance of the discussions and decisions whicli 
will mark the sessions. 

For San Francisco and the entire West, the con- 
vention promises to be a momentous event. Tiiou- 
sands of warders of the nation's monetary weallii, 
coming to this city from all parts of the United 
States will be brought into a closer understanding 
of the West, its impressive developmeiil, and its 
opportunities for liie invesloi-. 

Tliere is more than passing inlcrcsl in Ihc spec- 
tacle of the leaders of the American banking world 
wending their way westward in de luxe modern 
caravans of steel and steam ovei- the jjioneer trails 
of '19. Tile gold delved from the hills and wasiied 
from the streams of (".alifornia seventy-live years 
ago was the basis of much of the industrial and 
commercial growth of America, and conse(|uently 
of the vast banking system whose captains are to 
meet in San I'rancisco. 

The American Hankers .Yssmiation was organ- 
ized only a few years after the discovery of gold in 
California opened a portentous chaptei' in Ameri- 
can history. 'Hie San I'rancisco convention will 
mark a full half century in the life of that asso- 
ciation. 

It is pecniiar-ly lining, lluMTr(.rc. Ilia! Ilic lil'li.'lii

should be held here, tlie financial center of tin 
West and metropolis of the region that has contri 
buted so much to the wealth of the nation. 

Many outstanding figures will be present at th( 
convention. Tlie names of only a few have been 
announced, l)ut they indicate the caliber of men 
who will be here. Some of them are: 

J. AV. Pole of Washington, D. C, comptroller 
of the currency; William R. Dawes of Chicago, 
brother of former Vice President Charles C. 
Dawes, now Ambassador to (ireat Britain; Sir 
.lohn Aird. i)resident of the Canadian Bank of 
Commerce of Toronto; W\ A. Heath, governor of 
the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; Rollin P. 
Craiil, of the Irving Trust Co. of New York; Sher- 
rill Smith, vice president of the Chase National 
Bank of Ni'w ^'ork; Craig B. llazelwood, vice presi- 
dent of the First National Bank of Chicago and 
president of the American Bankers Association; 
and Cieorge V. Drew, vice president of the iMpiita- 
ble Trust Co. of New York. 

Advance indications are declared to ixiinl (n an 
attendance exceeding that of any convention of 
the association in recent years. Last year at Phila- 
delphia the total was about (101)0 and San Francisco 
expects to pass that mark by several thousand. 

I'nmi the very hour that San I-'rancisco was 
designated as the scene of the 1020 convention, the 
banki-rs of this city have been planning in a big 
way to meet the obligations imposed upon them 
as hosts to the huge gathering. .Viiiple funds were 
generously subsi'ribi'd and systematic prepara- 
liims inaui;nratcd.

Headintj the general committee of local 
bankers is W. E. Wilcox, vice president of 
the Anglo and London Paris National Bank. 
A. J. Mount, vice president of the Bank of 
Italy, is chairman of the executive commit- 
tee, in charge of the actual arrangements for 
the event. Numerous subcommittees have 
been engaged in working out various details. 

How the committees feel about their re- 
sponsibility was indicated by Wilcox in the 
following statement: 

"San Francisco is on the threshold of one 
of the greatest opportunities it has enjoyed 
in many years — an opportunity that finds the 
city standing as the representative of the state 
of California, in fact, the whole Pacific Coast, 
in welcoming the annual convention of the 
American Bankers Association. 

"The privilege of receiving the thousands 
of visitors who will be in attendance has come 
to us with a full realization of what it means. 

"We believe that the presence here of so 
many representative bankers from all parts 
of the United States is an invitation to us to 
give substantial evidence of the hospitality 
and friendliness for which the West is justly 
celebrated. In our arrangements toward that 
end we are receiving the cordial support of 
the splendid group of men who constitute the 
California Bankers Association." 

Preparations for the convention have in- 
volved the creation of a special organization 
headed by Charles W. Collier as manager. 
Collier, a business executive, was drafted for 
the task as an experienced organizer. Head- 
quarters in the Mills Building have handled 
the thousands of hotel reservations and a 
multiplicity of other details. With the ap- 
proach of the opening day of the convention 
assurance was given that every feature of the 
arrangements has been completed. 

Plans have been made to provide automo- 
bile transportation for delegates and their 
families on a sightseeing tour of the city on 
Sunday, September 29, which will end with 
a tea and reception at the St. Francis Yacht 
Club. Clyde N. Beal, vice president of the 
Anglo California Trust Co., is chairman of 
the transportation committee and has re- 
ported a hearty response by local bankers to 
the request for use of their cars. 

The golf committee, headed by Alan J. 
Lowrey and Porter Sesnon of the Crocker 
First National Bank, has arranged for use of 
the Lakeside course for the annual tourna- 
ment of the association, on Fridaj% October 
4. In addition to a number of trophies and

JUST as the east coast of our own toimtry is 
the most thickly populatod with liie ,i<roalest 
numher of large cities, the lars<esl factories, 
so (lie cast coast of South America has exjieri- 
ciiccd llie .greatest influx of ialxir and capital, 
and liere are found most of tlial coiilineiil's peo|)le, 
more of its large urban centers, and most of its in- 
dustrial development. This market, until within 
recent years, has heeii relying almost entirely upon 
sources bordering the Atlantic, for commodities it 
desired to import, and lra<le between the South 
American east coast and the slates of our west has 
been considered as something loo far fetched and 
impractical to warrant serious consideration. The 
first indication thai this situalioii would eN|>eri- 
ence a change resulted from the inaugiiralioii by 
the Shipping Hoar<l, of a regular dii"ecl service 
from (iiir Pacilie ('.nasi poiMs In Ihe easi roust of 



South America in 1920. Previous to this, there had 
been occasional sailings of tramps carrying full 
cargoes of Douglas fir to the River Plate, but as 
everyone realizes, a regular service was necessary 
to make it possible to develop a movement of other 
commodities, and this was what resulted when 
Ihe Pacific Argenline Ih'a/.il Line, inaugurated by 
Ihe Shipping Hoard, got under way. Soon Ihe 
.Vrgeiiline and I'ruguay began purchasing Califor- 
nia i)ruiies and sardines, and Ihe trade has grown 
lo a point where the items exporled from San 
I-'rancisco alone lo Argenlina last year, re(piired

ings from (".aliforuia to Hiver Plate ports last year, 
of which all but three were made via the Straits of 
Magellan. The developmeiil of Ibis trade was based] 
on Ihe largi> and steady demand for lumber, whichj 
is lioimd In increase.

Four scenes of Montevideo. Uruguay. 

Tlie Brazilian market, until within the last few 
years, has been out of the picture. Even when the 
Pacific Argentine Brazil Line went southliound 
through the Panama Canal, instead of through the 
Straits of Magellan, the cargo carried to Brazil was 
negligible. The only Brazilian port of call was 
Para, at the mouth of the Amazon, where a San 
Francisco concern, was shipping around 300 tons 
of flour per vessel. With no large regular volume 
of cargo, such as lumber, for Brazilian ports, 
Brazil being an exporter of lumber herself, it was 
not profitable to call at Bio de Janeiro 
and Santos, and no stops were made 
between Para and Montevideo or 
Buenos Aires. When the line passed 
into private hands therefore, the new 
owners, the McCormick Steamship 
Company, in order to reduce expenses 
and to speed up the service to the 
Biver Plate ports, to which practically 
all the line's cargo was destined, ob- 
tained authority from the Shipping 
Board to change the routing of the 
line. Tlienceforth the vessels of this 
line have gone direct to Buenos Aires 
and Montevideo via the Straits of 
Magellan. The result was a quicker 
service to these ports and also a reduc- 
tion in expense principally by reason 
of the elimination of canal tolls southbound. The 
Westfal Larsen Line follows this same route. 
Upon its inauguration in 1926, the exporters of our 
Pacific Coast obtained 12 additional sailings per 
year to the River Plate. 

In order to obtain a service to Brazil and develop 
enough cargo to make that service profitable, it was 



necessary to secure ships 
equipped to carry large quan- 
tities of fresh apples and pears, 
which is the only commodity 
Brazil is ready to import in 
quantities sufficient to war- 
rant the cost of calling at 
Brazil's principal ports — Rio 
de .Janeiro and Santos. It was 
apparent that once ships would 
call regularly at these ports, it 
would become possible to 
build up a market for other 
products, just as has been the 
case in Argentina and Uru- 
guay. 

The Blue Star Line subse- 
([uently sent its first ship via 
the Panama Canal to Bio in 
1927, with a large quantity of fresh fruit for both 
Brazilian and Biver Plate ports, and has a total of 
four sailings over this route during the present 
year. The last development is the announcement 
of the Westfal Larsen Line, operated by the Gen- 
eral Steamship Corporation, that it is also going to 
follow this route with five new refrigerator ships 
on a basis of monthly sailings. This makes it now 
worth while to devote time and eflfort towards in- 
creasing the last of items exported from San Fran- 
cisco. Last year, shipments cleared from San Fran- 
cisco to Brazil comprised only 34 items, and seeing 
the experience in Argentina and Uruguay, and 
knowing the buying capacity of Brazil, it is no

Rut it is precious little we

myself iiave found (piite a lot of i)('ople there

with souls above debauchery, dope and dollars. 

America has given us the tin Lizzie, the movies, 
the gramophone, the talkies, and has taught us to 
listen in; but America has also taught democracy 
how to build homes, and factories, and offices. Her 
modern commercial and domestic architecture 
constitute a new phase in the development of shel- 
tered civilisation. She has a population which has 
some real joy in work, and in industrial affairs 
there has been a levelling up, instead of down, in 
skill. In a hundred different ways she has helped 
the whole world to a higher plane of civilisation, 
and, above all, there are those intangible things of 
the spirit — hopes, aspirations and ideals for the 
betterment of mankind — in which she has been 
pre-eminent. 

When I was on the Tariflf Board, I grew to have 
a great regard for the splendid type of business 
men who have come here from America — men of 
the General Electric Co., General Motors Co., and 
a score of others. Perhaps it is invidious to mention 
names, but I must allude to Mr. Harold Clapp, Chief 
Railways Commissioner of Victoria — an Austra- 
lian who learned his job in America. There is a 
man of vision, of capacity, of genius. He is your 
true Empire builder. He ever advocates the spirit 
of service, which is one of the greatest discoveries 
contributed to the industrial and commercial 
progress of a nation. 

I have met splendid men from America here in 
Victoria, and I have met fine men in the States 
when I have visited that great country. I find them 
all permeated with that spirit of service, not only 



15 

for their omu country, but for the country in which 
they are living and earning their living. 

I have been a reader of American papers, books 
and magazines, and I gather from the utterances 
of leading Americans that there is a trend at the 
present moment in the direction of clothing the 
ideal with thought and action. The last statement 
of President Hoover and his reference to the 
Kellogg Pact indicates this. And, having this in 
mind, it seems to me that America is beginning to 
change what has been but a pious hope into a pro- 
found reality. How can she do this? 

There are several ways, but of all the ways the 
simplest and most effective is for her to abandon 
her ten-years insularity and come right into the 
League of Nations. If she would only do this it is 
possible for her and Great Britain to get alongside 
each other and see eye to eye. They might then dis- 
arm as far as is needed in the present state of the 
world. That would solve the whole problem of 
the freedom of the seas, high-tariff barriers, and 
all the rest of it. 

I say this with some background of experience. 
When I was a member of the Australian Delega- 
tion to the League of Nations' conference in 1923, 
Mussolini seized the island of Corfu, and was go- 
ing to bottle up the Adriatic as an Italian sea. This, 
of course, was a test question for the League of 
Nations, and it had to be side-stepped, much 
against the will of the members, because it was 
utterly impossible for Great Britain to exercise 
the economic pressure necessary, by virtue of her 
sea power, without the sanction and approval of 
the United States. From that day to this I have 
always realised that, splendid as is the work of the 
League of Nations in minor matters and in keep-

The Million-Dolla 




NEW methods of transportation — air- 
plane, dirigible and the like — will come 
and grow, but the romance of river 
transportation — immortalized by Mark 
Twain — will always be with us, always retaining 
its incomparable charm and attraction. 

Without its bay and harbor, there would be no 
San Francisco. The beauty of San Francisco, as 
well as its commercial sui)reniacy, cannot be dis- 
sociated from its wonderful bay. Hut we must 
not forget that the long arms of liiat bay ■ — the 
San .loacpiin and Sacramento rivers — extending 
througli (he ricli delta lands and the inland valleys, 
continue the beauties of the hay region on into llic 
very heart of C-alifornia. 

Even so does river travel link liie busy days of 
the present with the stirring, romantic days of Die 
past, for the original means of commercial trans- 
portation and of travel was by means of river 
boats.

of the attractions and advantages they see here — 
other hundreds of thousands reside here — yet 
these have not seen half the beauty of tliis region 
unless they have also seen the rivers — unless they 
have enjoyed the two picturesque trips "up river" 
— to Sacramento, and to Stockton. 

It was back in I808, seventy-one years ago. that 
Captain Nelson and Captain Anderson — the latter 
the father of the present head of the California 
Trans]>()rtation Conipany — each owned a sloop, 
one named the "Northern Light," and the other 
the "Emma and Delia." Even back in 1S58 the 
sjjirit of mergers was active, and the two ca])tains 
consolidated their interests and fornu-d what later 
became the California Trans|)ortatioii Company, 
lirsl ii)cori)orated under the nanu' in 187."). 

About the first year of their oi)erali<)M, one of the 
old farmers on the Sacramento River had picked 
a lot of peaches more than could be used for the 
home community — and Captain Anderson was 
asked if he woidd bring this fruit down to San 
I'rancisco, sell il. take out his commission, and 
re! urn the balance to the shi])per. The captain 
re|)lie(l thai he could not do (|uile all of this, but 
he would lind someone who could handle the sell- 
ing of Ihc peaches in San I'"i'anciscii, So he hrought

tlie load of fruit down and 
turned it over to a little gro- 
cery store that stood at that 
time on the corner of Front 
and Jackson streets, George 
Hughes' old place. This 
grocery sold the peaches, 
deducted ten per cent for 
commission, and returned 
the remainder of the amount 
to the shipper. 

The news of this transac- 
tion spread up and down the river, and it was not 
long before many fruit growers were consigning 
their excess crops to the same little grocery on San 
Francisco's waterfront. 

As a result, the grocery store expanded into a 
commission house — and this was the nucleus of 

the enormous commission business which San 
Francisco now possesses. Most interesting of all, 
the same commission charges established by that 
little grocery store prevail today. 

In 1866, sixty-three years ago, the California 
Transporation Company, then not yet incorpo- 
rated, built its first boat — the stern-wheel steamer 

"Reform," a reproduction of which appears 

in this article. This 

boat was registered in 

the Custom House in 

1867, and its register 

number was 61 — evi- 
dencing that only sixty 

boats had registered 

before her, these sixty 



first stern-wheeler of the

nsportation Company. She 

christened "Reform" in 

1866. 




being the side-wheelers 
which used to chug up and 
down the rivers during the 
gold rush days of that 
period. 

With succeeding years, 
other steamers were added 
to the complement; and in 
1904 the Union Steamship 
Company was absorbed by 
the California Transportation Company, which 
gave the latter service access into Stockton. From 
that year on, the cut-throat competition which had 
existed prior to that time, and which had impov- 
erished all of the boat lines, was stabilized. Pas- 
senger travel continued to expand, making it 
necessary to construct boats that appealed more 
and more to the traveling puljlic. 

The California Transportation Company was 
at that time about the only line that engaged ex- 
tensively in the handling of the river produce, and

Pacific Coast Steel Company's South San Francisco plant — New Million-Dollar Bolt and Nut Mill addition at right. 

By HENRY BOSTWICK 

Member Industrial Committee, San Francisco Chamber of Comvicrce 



THOSE few pessimists who are of the be- 
lief that San Francisco has no great in- 
dustrial future will find great difficulty 
in holding to the courage of their convic- 
tions when they sec the new million-dollar bolt, nut 
and rivet mill recently added to the South San 
Francisco plant of the Pacific Coast Steel Company. 
Here is concrete evidence that hard-headed busi- 
ness men sec a great future for the industrial de- 
velopment of this community. 

President 1). E. McLaughlin of the steel company 
voices the sentiments of many of us who see a 
vision of a mighty San Francisco industrial district 
when he states, "We did not build our new bolt and 
nut mill to satisfy the pi'csent consumption for 
such pi-oducis as the mill will produce but instead 
we have jjlanned this mill to supply the market 
which San Francisco's industrial development will 
demand for the next ten years. Tliis new mill is so 
planned that witliin ninety days our present ca- 
pacity can be increased fifty per cent without 
changing the present liuilding. Sliould we desire 
to further ex|)aiui this |)lant, the walls and building 
are .so designed that it can be enlarged on three 
sides without disturi)ing operations and without 
necessitating any great changes in the arrange- 
ment of our machinery." 

GROWTH OF PACIFIC COAST STEEL CO. 

Sucli planning is .secret of the means wlieieiiy 
tiie Pacific Coast Steel Company has been devel- 
oped from a small steel plant at Lakevii'W, Wash- 
ington, to one of the largest industrial insliliilions 
of the Pacific Coast. 

In 18U1, Judge E. iM. Wilson started (lie small 



steel plant at Lakeview, which operated there for 
nine years. In 19(13, William Pigott, Sr., joined 
Judge Wilson in the enterprise and the plant was 
moved to Seattle where they operated until 1911. 

In 1912, the Seattle plant was merged with an- 
other plant at Portland, and the present South San 
Francisco plant, which was then operated by D. P. 
Doak, as the Doak Sheet Metal Works, and sub- 
sequently the concern's general ofl'ices were estab- 
lished in San Francisco. 

After Judge Wilson became interested in the de- 
velopment of the steel mill, the South San Fran- 
cisco plant consisted of one open hearth furnace 
with a capacity of fifty tons in a ten-hour turn. As 
contrasted with the present method of ojjeration, 
these furnaces were loaded by wheel barrows and 
the steel was rolled on one 18-inch straight-line 
mill which was steam driven. 

In 1915, a nine-inch mill was installed and the 
pi'eseiit program of im|)rovement was further de- 
veloped in 1918 when steam ])ower was abandoned 
and the entire plant was ojierated electrically. To- 
day tlie plant is completely modernized throughout 
and enlarged beyond the fondest dreams of its 
founders. 

The importance of llie Pacific Coast Steel Com- 
pany was further emphasized in 1921 when it took 
over direction of the ojjerations of the Snulliern 
California Iron and Steel Comiiany, an affiliated 
company, giving the Pacific Coast Steel Company 
rei)resenlative jilanls an invested capital of .$20,- 
0(10, 1109 ill Ilie principal industrial centers of the 
Coast. Today the plants of this concern represent 
a total inveslmeiil of .t!L5,000,000 iind the southern

vestment, making a total of $20,000,000 worth of 
steel plants under the direction of the Pacific Coast 
Steel Company. 

The small one-furnace plant of the concern at 
South San Francisco has grown until today it in- 
cludes six hasic open hearth furnaces; one 24-inch 
billet mill; one 18-inch merchant bar mill; a 16-inch 
and a 12-inch merchant bar mill; a 12-inch Belgian 
roughing mill and a 9-inch finishing merchant 
mill; a concrete bar fabricating plant; a transmis- 
sion tower plant which manufactures a large part 
of the high tension towers used in the West; and to 
climax all of this development — the new million- 



vise and direct operations in the projected plant. 
Stetter is well and favorably known to all bolt prod- 
uct manufacturers and consumers, having headed 
and directed several of the largest and most pro- 
gressive plants of the East. He owned the Muncie 
Cap and Set Screw Company, manufacturers of 
bolt products for automobiles, gas engines and 
other machines, which plant was sold shortly be- 
fore coming to California. 

The new department of the steel company is 
housed in a giant steel structure, measuring 180 
feet wide by 600 feet long, the sides of which — 
about 40 feet high are glass — allowing natural 
illumination, and contains the inost 
modern machinery for the manufac- 
ture of bolts, nuts, rivets, cap screws, 
track spikes and kindred products 
that could be obtained in the country. 
The investment of the building alone 
represents an expenditure of over 
$120,100 and when the cost of ma- 
chinery, tools, equipment, and stock 
is added, the new unit becomes a truly 
million-dollar industry. 




dollar bolt and nut and rivet mill 
which is being formally dedicated 
September 12. 

To operate all of the machines in 
the various processes of steel manu- 
facture the company employs over 
650 people at the South San Francisco 
plant on an aggregate annual payroll 
approaching two million dollars. 

THE NEW BOLT AND NUT MILL 
In planning this expansion to their business, the 
management of the Pacific Coast Steel Company 
made an intensive study of the outstanding fac- 
tories making bolts, nuts, and rivets in the country, 
for it was their aim, as President McLaughlin 
states, "to make this new mill the most modern 
plant of its kind in the country." 

Following an intensive study of the need for a 
bolt, nut, rivet and specialty forging plant in con- 
junction with the industrial engineers of the San 
Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the Pacific 
Coast Steel Company secured John Stetter to super- 



This plant is designed to meet the trade require- 
ments of the Pacific Slope, and has a capacity of 
1200 tons per month with its present equipment. 
This includes both rod and hand feed machines for 
hot heading, and center feed machines for hot nut 
making. Cold heading equipment includes both 
open and solid die machines with a corresponding 
complement of cold press nut machines. Both the 
threading and nut tapping operations are largely 
automatic. 

To supply the bolt rod used in this plant which 
is high tensile steel made in the company's own 
mill, a $125,000 additional annual payroll was

WITH the l^acific Coast firmly estab- 
lished as a <k)mina tins' factor in all 
aeronautical activities, it requires no 
"second-siifht" to visualize the 
proniisin.q future open to the San Francisco metro- 
politan area as a center for manufacturing aircraft, 
enj^ines and accessories. 

Geof^raphically, climatically aiul otherwise, this 
section is admirably suited for aviation develop- 
ment. It is the natural distribution center for the 
eleven western stales, the Orient and South 
America. Maiudacturinf^ and testin{» of aircraft 
can be carried on without interruption all year 
'round. I.arf<e undeveloped tracts are available for 
plant sites and test porl.s, labor is plentiful and 
efficient, and there is plenty of open water for sea 
|)lanes and a[n|)hibians. 



The first large enterprise to enter this field is 
Marchetti Motor Patents, Inc., builders of planes 
and engines. This concern has two plants, one at 
.31 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, and the other 
in course of construction at South San Francisco, 
adjacent to Mills Field. 

According to company officials, the first unit of 
the factory now being built will be completed this 
month. The group of buildings consisting of assem- 
bly and machine shops, foundry, heat-treating 
|)lant warehou.ses and hangars will represent an 
investment of more than s l()(l,0()0. All buildings 
are of steel and concrete conslruclion, representing

stability and easy maneuverability with economy 
in operation and maintenance, the Marchetti 
"Arrow," a two-place, low-wing, 100 horse power 
job, has made its initial bow to the public. It is 
powered with a four-cylinder, air-cooled, "in line" 
Marchetti motor. Fuselage and wings are of lami- 
nated plywood finished attractively in blue and 
gold. 

TO BUILD ALL-METAL AIRCRAFT. 

With the completion of additional factory units, 
the company expects to enter production of eight- 
passenger, all-metal, multi-motored monoplanes, 
carrying Marchetti cam-action engines. The cam- 
action engine is the invention of Paul Marchetti, 
Italian engineer, who, until his untimely death a 
few days ago, was president of the company. Power 
is applied through the action of roller bearings 
against specially generated cams which act as the 
driving unit. As the four-cycle principle is retained 
through a single revolution of the main shaft, valve 
action is obtained without the use of overhead cam 
shafts. Vibration is practically eliminated and pis- 
ton wall pressure reduced to a negligible point. 
There are no bronze or babbit bearings or bushings 
in the engine. Weight per horse power averages 
2% pounds. A test motor showed no signs of wear 
after being operated at full load over a series of 
tests totaling 2200 hours. 

Technical supervision and direction of sales for 
both planes and engines is in the hands of Lieut. 



Commander George O. Noville, member of the 
Byrd trans-Atlantic flight and of the Byrd North 
Pole Expedition. 

Captain Aubrey I. Eagle, well-known Army flyer 
and engineer, is chief pilot and a member of the 
board of directors. William Aickman Rider and 
Julius Dusevoir, both former General Motors 
executives, hold the titles of production manager 
and chief engineer, respectively. The board of di- 
rectors includes. Dr. R. P. Giovannetti, vice-presi- 
dent and secretary; Peter Lippi, treasurer; August 
R. Oliva, second vice-president, and Captain Eagle, 
R. Gianni and Frank Santina, directors. 

The completed factory at South San Francisco 
will have an ultimate capacity of 1000 engines and 
100 planes per annum and is so designed that addi- 
tional units can be added whenever required. The 
unit now nearing completion consists of two build- 
ings, one measuring 60 x 200 feet and the other 
60 X 100 feet. 

Before buildings were laid out it was necessary 
to drain and fill a large section of the salt water 
marsh that surrounds the property adjacent to the 
state highway. This required eight months of con- 
tinuous effort. 

With the improvement of Mills Field and the 
development work carried on by the Marchetti in- 
terests, it is expected that other aeronautical manu- 
facturing concerns will locate in the South San 
Francisco industrial district where conditions are 
favorable to all aviation activities.

Pacific Coast Manufacturing Progress 



THE manufacturing industries 
established in the three Pacific 
Coast States totaled 15.200 in 
1927; the annual value of their 
production amounted to 3.6 billion dol- 
lars, or S.S per cent of the total United 
States production value of 62.7 billion 
dollars. 

Eighteen years ago, back in 1909, there 
were 13,600 establishments on the Pacific 
Coast with an annual production of only 
.8 bilhon dollars. By 1914 the number 
of establishments had increased to 



By R. B. Koeber 

16,206; their production value to $1,- 
068,000,000 or an increase of 26 per cent. 

The combined impetus given to Pacific 
Coast manufacturing by the completion 
of the Panama Canal and the demands of 
the World War resulted in a tremendous 
growth for the Pacific Coast industries 
during the five-year period following 
1914.

for 1927 compared to 1919 show the 
number of estabhshments and the num- 
ber of wage earners in the three coast 
states decreased 4200 and 6500 respec- 
tively, but increases were found in the 
wages amounting to $18,700,000; cost of 
materials, $214,000,000; value of produc- 
tion, $456,000,000, The increase in elec- 
trical energ>- amounted to 608,000 horse 
power. 

The Department of Commerce reports 
for the United States for the same period 
revealed a decrease in the number of 
manufacturing establishments of 22,000; 
wage earners. 645,000; and cost of ma- 
terial, $2,064,000,000, But at the same 
time were increases in the amount ex- 
pended for wages of $389,000,000 and 
$718,000,000 in value of manufactured 
product. The increased electrical energy 
amounted to 9,722,000 horse power. 

The Pacific Coast increase of $456,- 
000,000 for the eight years from 1919- 
1927 amounted to 63.5 per cent of the 
LTnited States total increase for the same 
period. 

The horse power energy utihzed per 
wage earner in the manufacturing indus- 
tries in 1919 in the United States amount- 
ed to 3.2 compared to 4.6 by 1927, or 
43.8 per cent increase. 

The Pacific Coast States in 1919 
ranked higher than the United States 
with 4 horse power per wage earner which 
increased to 5.5 horse power by 1927 or 
37.6 per cent increase. 

During the eight-year period the small- 
est increase on the Pacific Coast occurred 
in Oregon where the highest horse power 
per wage earner e.xisted in 1019 and 
amounted to 5.1. In 1027 it amounted 
to 5.4 or le.ss than a o per cent increase; 
compared to Washington with 5 horse 
power in 1019 and in 1027 0.5 horse 
power; and California 3 horse power in 
1919 and 5 horse power in 1927. Cali- 
fornia still has the lowest horse power per 
wage earner of either of the other two 
stales, On the other hand this slate over 
the eight -year period has increased the 
use of power per wage earner most 
rapidly, amounting to 6o.2 per cent. 

The value of nianufaclured products 
JHT horse power in 1927 amounted to

For a great many years, this one carrier 
handled practically all of the potatoes 
and onions from the delta lands to San 
Francisco — the amount handled running 
into the millions of sacks annually. A 
great deal of this business is now diverted 
to the rail hnes that traverse the territory 
where at one time only the steamboat 
whistle was heard. But other traffic has 
taken the place of the produce as the 



delta region has diversified its acti\dties, 
and at the present time about two and 
one-half millions of tons of freight are 
handled annually by boat on the Sacra- 
mento and San Joaquin Rivers and tribu- 
taries. 

In 1910, the steamer "Capital City" 
was built by the CaUfornia Transporta- 
tion Company. It was the finest boat of 
her type then running on the inland 
waters. The following year the steamer 
"Fort Sutter" was built, a sister ship to 
the "Capital City." The supervising in- 
spector general of the United States said 
at one time that the steamer "Fort 
Sutter" was the finest boat of her tj'pe 
operating on the inland waters and should 
be used as a model for the construction 
of other boats for similar service.

These two boats were the queens of 
the waterways until the construction of 
the de luxe floating hotels known as the 
"Delta King" and the "Delta Queen," 
which went into service June 1, 1Q27. 
These kingly steamers are of steel con- 
struction and were built at a cost of one 
million dollars each — built in the ship- 
yards of the California Transportation 
Company at Stockton, California. The 
steel for these boats was galvanized and 
cut in the shipyards of Wm. Denny & 
Bros., at Dumbarton, Scotland, and the 
duty alone on this steel work amounted 
to $50,000. The superintendent of the 
Denny shipyards was also brought here 
to oversee the construction of the hulls 
in the Stockton shipyard and to have the 
necessary parts made to complete the 
hulls. Then came the building of the 
superstructure. At one time, during the 
construction of the two steamers, there 
were 77 Scotch and Swedish joiners put- 
ting in the finishing work on the inside of 
the boats. Better tradesmen did not 
exist than those Scotch and Swedish 
joiners, all of whom had spent seven 
years at the bench in order to learn their 
trade. 

And any connoisseur of inside decora- 
tion can have all the thrills and pleasure 
of the lover of fine things by inspecting 
the interior construction of these boats 
— all finished in quarter-sawed Michigan 
white oak and Siam teakwood. The teak- 
wood was purchased in the original logs 
from the shipbuilding plants in Oakland, 
when they cleaned up their stocks after 
the World War was over. 

One of the most beautiful trips in west- 
ern waters is the trip up the Sacramento 
River — to start from the Ferry Building 
at San Francisco on a moonlight evening 
and pass up the bay, past Alcatraz Island, 
up the Racoon Straits into San Pablo 
Bay, past the giant sugar plant at 
Crockett — the largest in this country — 
then on through the Carquinez Straits 
into the river. It is a trip and a pleasure 
not soon forgotten by those who are 
fortunate enough to have enjoyed such a 
journey. 

For the business man, this trip affords 
peculiar advantages. He completes his 
day's labors in San Francisco, takes his 
hotel room, and wakes up next morning 
in Sacramento ready for his activities in 
that city. 

Or, if you want to enjoy to the full 
the languorous charms of the winding 
river, take one of the way-landing boats 
— the boat that stops at ail the points of 
call through the delta lands. It is a jiictur- 
e.sque trip — and often the iioat suddenly 
startles a covey of Chinese itheasants 
from the underbrush upon the banks and 
away ihey whir against the lilinking lights 
of some riverbank home seen through the 
trees. On the return trip from Stockton, 
it is a long-to-he-renieniliered sight to 
see the houses penhcd upon the banks, 
the playing children waving at the boat as 
it passes by, then alongside the beautiful 
country dub and golf course, down the 
Old and Middle River sections with their 
crisscross bridges, past many lovely is- 
lands, and on to San Francisco by the 
time the sun begins to rise. 



BIGGER 




.^ W BETTER 



The Bulletin has passed on. For years before its death, it was on 
the decline. Unable to make progress on its own account, it re- 
tarded the growth of its stronger competitors. 

The News foresaw the result. The News made plans to become 
one of the best and most complete evening newspapers in the 
United States. 

When The Bulletin was eliminated, those plans were imme- 
diately put into effect. A program of expansion and improvement 
was inaugurated. 

NOW— 

Four pages of colored comics 
An eight-page magazine . . 
An enlarged financial section 
Editorial cartoons by Rodger 
Two additional pages of news 
Greater sports section 
Sports reviews by Tom Laird 
Golf news by Owen Merrick 
''The Story of The Bulletin'' 
Stock data by Frank Herman 



All departments were enlarged. More pages 
were added. But mere bulk is not a true mea- 
sure of journalistic worth. What goes into the 
paper is far more important. So The News 
provided better coverage of local, state, national 
and world news. An even higher standard of 
writing and editing was established. 

With a vastly superior product, it was no 
longer necessary to offer The News at a price 
that did not pay for the white paper on 
which it was printed. Now The News sells 
for three cents on the street, seventy -five 
cents per month delivered into the home. 
Readers who found The News a good value at 
two cents are finding it a much greater value 
at three cents. 

The News is going ahead. It will continue to 
improve. It is free from toryism. It is progres- 
sive. It is alert and in step with modern 
thought. Its constant effort is to be sane, to be 
accurate, to be fair — to be, in short, a decent, 
tolerant, constructive journalistic factor in the 
life of San Francisco.

Mr. Alanson B. Houghton, the retiring 
U. S. Ambassador to Great Britain, in a 
striking address at a dinner given in his 
honor in London said: 



"If anyone is anxious about the 
Anglo-American relations because there 
are unsolved problems between the two 
peoples, I have no words to comfort 
him. There will never be a time when 
such problems do not exist. I see only 
one reason for distrust. And that is the 
existence of two mental hobgoblins. 
One of these appears from time to time 
in America to assure us that Britain is 
a predatory Power, cynically careless 
of right and wrong, greedy, cunning, 
and waiting only for a favorable op- 
portunity to strike us do-wn. The other 
appears from time to time in Britain 
to assure you (England) that as Amer- 
ica becomes more conscious of her 
gigantic strength she will inevitably

become imperialistic, and will use that 

strength merely to play the bully and 

become a danger and a menace to the 

peoples of the world. But these two 

hobgobUns do not speak the truth. A 

durable and unbreakable peace exists 

even now between the British and 

American peoples if they will but 

recognise the fact." 

For myself, I think this is a true view 

of the position. And what wonderful 

work the great Ambassadors have done 

to preserve this goodwill between the two 

great peoples! I think of Jay. Everett, 

Adams, James Russell Lowell. Choate 

and the others, and their magnificent 

contributions to the harmony of the 

whole world. 

My wife and I are no ambassadorial 
paragons. We are home-loving people, 
but we will try to live up to the lofty 
traditions these men have left and the 
splendid examples of the precedent Aus- 
tralian Commissioners. We shall do our 
best, acting always in accordance with 
the instructions of the Commonwealth 
Government. 

I do most fervently hold the belief that 
the peoples of Australia and .\merica are 
made up of millions of kindly, decent, 
hard-working. God-fearing men and 
women, who possess innate common 
sense, who are busy about their own 
affairs, who want to live in peace, and 
who mean. God willing, to do so. It is 
time that we recognised this fully and 
consciously, and turned definitely away 
from the fantastic and distorted views of 
our true relations to each other. 

The new .American Ambassador to 
London. General Dawes, who until a 
couple of months ago was Vice-President 
of the United States, had this to say: 
"It is not a question of whether an 
.American is pro-British or anti-British, 
or whether a Britisher is pro-American 
or anti-American. It is a question of 
whether there is to be peace and order 
and progress in the world." 
If they did not know it before. .Ameri- 
cans and Englishmen learned in France 
that they could work together; that they 
could trust each other, and that they 
worked in the same way to the same end. 
With unity of understanding between the 
two great English-speaking peoples the 
foundation of the civilisation of the world 
will remain unshaken. 

.Ml Jeremiahs to the contrary notwith- 
standing, it may well be doubted whether 
the fundamental relations between any 
nations in close and constant contact have 
ever been more satisfactory than those 
now existing between the United States 
and Great Britain — and in this connection 
Great Britain means the British Empire. 
There are at present fewer real causes of 
friction between the two nations than at 
any time in their common history. 

"The dogs bark, but the caravan moves 
on." runs the old Persian proverb. My 
wife and I go to our new sphere with 
high hopes and aspirations. We shall 
carry the oritlammc of goodwill, and our 
motto will be. "Advance Australia, hail 
Columbia."

to $93,000,000, and was equal to the en- 
tire increase shown on the Pacific Coast, 
as Oregon fell back in this item and 
Washington advanced sufficiently to bal- 
ance the Oregon decrease amounting to 
$1,752,000. 

The Department of Commerce figures 
recently released show that the five lead- 
ing industries on the Pacific Coast ac- 
cording to their rank were; lumber and 
time products, amounting to $419,502,000 
or 43 per cent of the United States total; 
petroleum and refining, $356,000,000 or 
16 per cent of the United States; canning 
and preserving, $207,462,000 or 36.2 per 
cent of the United States; slaughtering 
and meat packing, $172,673,000 or S.7 
per cent of the United States; printing 
and publishing, $171,093,000 or 6.8 per 
cent of the United States. 

There are five industries in California 
with an annual output of over one hun- 
dred million dollars; in the order of their 
value they are : petroleum refining, $3 57,- 
000,000, 54 establishments; canning and 
preserving (fruit, vegetables, etc.), $181,- 
662,000, 311 establishments; printing and 
publishing (including newspapers, period- 
icals, books, and job), $131,082,000, 1522 
establishments; slaughtering and meat 
packing, $124,546,000, 94 estabHshments; 
motion picture industry, $101,045,000, 
78 establishments. 

In addition there are four other indus- 
tries with an annual output of over fifty 
million dollars. In order of their im- 
portance they are; foundries and ma- 
chine shop products, bread and bakeries, 
lumber and timber products, motor 
vehicles. 

In Oregon there is one industry, lumber 
and timber products, with an annual out- 
put of $112,242,000 with 353 estabHsh- 
ments. The other industries have less 
than $25,000,000 annual output. In order 
of their value they are; flour and grain, 
$21,000,000; slaughtering and meat pack- 
ing, $15,000,000; paper, $15,000,000; 
canning and packing $14,000,000. 

Washington likewise has but one in- 
dustry over one hundred million dollar 
output annually. This is also the lumber 
and timber products amounting to $237,- 
506,000 with 538 establishments. Other 
industries in order of their value are: 
flour and grain mills, $45,000,000; 
slaughtering and meat packing, $43,- 
000,000; paper, $20,000,000; planing 
mill products, $20,000,000. 

The manufacturing progress on the 
Pacific Coast, aside from those industries 
dependent on a smaller economic mini- 
mum found in the immediate market, has 
been allocated chiefly by the presence of 
native raw materials and attractive pro- 
duction factors including low distribution 
costs, fuel costs, power rates, tax rates, 
etc. 

In the northwest the lumber, paper, 
pulp, salmon, and cereal industries are 
foremost though there are some large

prediction to say that by the end of next 
year, this Ust of items will be materiaUy 
increased. Considerable pioneering is be- 
ing done at present, and we may later be 
surprised at the variety of commodities 
sold on the South American east coast. 

It is sometimes pointed out that Cali- 
fornia is standing on its o^ii legs, as far 
as the markets of the east coast of South 
America are concerned, whereas much of 
her exports to the Orient are products 
originating east of the Rockies, the con- 
clusion being that it would not be worth 



while tr>dng to develop markets for com- 
modities other than those in the produc- 
tion of which our western states spe- 
ciahze. That is, while it is perfectly rea- 
sonable to predict a large and growing 
exportation of fresh fruit, dried fruit, 
carmed goods, eggs, lumber, petroleum 
products, etc., the same would not hold 
true for manufactured goods. This con- 
clusion however, does not take into ac- 
count the fact that in many cases the 
time consumed in shipping goods from 
our western ports is no more than that 
required to ship from Atlantic ports, that 
most of the factories in our western states 
are either on, or close to tidewater, that 
production costs in our western states 
are favorable and prices competi-

tive in comparison with other manufac- 
turing centers, that the steamship com- 
panies engaged in building up the move- 
ment of general cargo from our Pacific 
ports to the east coast of South America 
are desirous of extending every aid to the 
exporter in order to enable him to land 
his commodity at a competitive price, 
and furthermore that general cargo al- 
ready going southbound includes a num- 
ber of western manufactured goods. The 
exportation of manufactured goods can 
only show a gradual increase, as their 
sale depends on obtaining active and in- 
terested representatives or distributors 
abroad, who will be willing to spend time 
and money to introduce the articles in 
question and establish the trade mark or 
trade names by which these articles are 
known, unbke commodities sold in bulk, 
whose sale often fluctuates as does the 
movement in prices. That an increase in 
the demand for products manufactured 
in our western industrial centers, does 
exist and is growing, needs no other proof 
than the statistics of export to .\rgentina, 
Uruguay and Brazil, plus the fact that the 
number of western manufacturers having 
connections in these markets to the south 
is constantly receiving additions. Among 
the items more conspicuous because of 
the quantity already moving are rubber 
goods, automobile accessories and re- 
placement parts, electrical goods, oil 
drilling and oil well machinery, agricul- 
tural machinery, lacquers and roofing 
paper, while conspicuous because of the 
surprise one experiences in learning that 
they were actually shipped, though in 
small quantities to be sure since it will 
take a little time before a demand can be 
developed are oatmeal, biscuit and 
crackers, cigarettes, bathing suits, hard- 
ware, incubators, ink and others. 

No discussion of this trade is complete 
without stating that the return cargo 
movement is dependent on the large 
quantities of Brazilian coffee imported by 
our western consuming centers. With 
this as a basis, there has been built up to 
complement it. a market for Brazilian 
cacao and Brazil nuts or niggerloes, while 
Argentina and Uruguay supply us with the

products of their packing plants. Argen- 
tina also ships us casein, tanning extract 
and seeds. The imports of Brazilian coffee 
have fallen off due to the availability of 
milder coffee at equal prices in Colombia 
and Central America, while imports from 
the River Plate will probably decline if 
the proposed increases in our import 
duties, now being discussed in Washing- 
ton D. C, are put into effect. 

Since import duties need always to be 
taken into consideration when studying 
the interchange of commodities between 
different sections of the world, it is worth 
noting that there is a considerable differ- 
ence in the treatment accorded by our 
import tariff to Brazil, as compared with 
Argentina and Uruguay. Brazil, being 
largely a producer of commodities of a 
tropic clime, which commodities we can- 
not profitably produce ourselves and 
which we import in large quantities, is al- 
lowed to ship to our ports over 95 per 
cent of all her exports to us, free of duty. 
The Argentina and Uruguay, on the other 
hand, located in a temperate clime, pro- 
duce the same commodities we do our- 
selves and compete with us in selling 
these products in the markets of Europe. 
We allow Argentina to ship us free of 
duty only a little over 40 per cent and 
Uruguay about 30 per cent, of what they 
sell us, and they have been insisting that 
in view of their large purchases from us, 
we should give their products better 
treatment upon arrival at our customs- 
houses. This does not necessarily mean 
the elimination of import duties on vari- 
ous items, but likewise, reductions. It 
does not appear that this will be done, and 
that some of our duties which are levied 
on such products as Argentina and 
Uruguay would like to sell us in larger 
volume, may be increased. 

While we cannot therefore seek for 
better treatment for our commodities in 
Argentina and Uruguay, it would seem 
that the opposite might be the case as far 
as Brazil is concerned, since we only re- 
ceive the right to ship fresh fruits free 
of duty to her ports. If Brazil should at 
any time see fit to reduce her duties on 
such products of our western states as 
canned fish and dried fruit, which she 
does not produce, we would be able to 
considerably increase our exports to 
Brazil of these commodities. The pro- 
duction of canned fruit and vegetables is 
very limited in Brazil, and of compara- 
tively poor quality. The present duties 
are so high that not even the Brazilian 
producer can hope to sell his product for 
more than half the price at which Cali- 
fornia canned fruit is being retailed. 
Some vegetables, such as asparagus, are 
produced on such a small scale and the 
possibilities for increasing production 
are so limited, that the present import 
tariff serves no purpose. There is nothing 
to protect and imports are so small as to 
make the revenue from the tariff assessed 
on these products insignificant. 

These are matters which, it is hoped, 
will be straightened out in the near future, 
and thus make it possible to work for a 
greater and steadily increasing exchange 
of commodities, with profit for all coun- 
tries involved.

fruit canning and woolen industries be- 
sides those industries of small economic 
minimum supported by a given popu- 
lation. 

In northern California food and kin- 
dred products, including canning and 
packing, predominate. The largest sugar 
refinen.- in the world is in this section. 
Large key industries supplying the Pacific 
Coast are located in this district. They 
include such products as iron, steel, tin, 
lead, tanning, and building material sup- 
plies. 

In this district there are also some of 
the largest and most modern printing 
establishments west of Chicago. The 
lumber and allied products, including 
furniture and the textile group are also 
well represented as are the chemical and 
allied products, including petroleum re- 
fining, and paint manufacturing, also the 
machinery group and transportation, in- 
cluding the motor car industry. In other 
words the diversification of industry is 
best represented in northern California. 

In southern CaHfornia. petroleum re- 
fining and the motion picture industry 
predominate. The building material 
group, including ceramic, clay, and stone 
are also present. Some textile products, 
also those diversified industries that find 
an economic minimum to support their 
activity are found in this section. 

The trend of Pacific Coast manufac- 
turing progress is dictated largely by the 
increase in markets and the necessary 
economic minimum which will support 
the particular manufacturing activity. 

The Pacific Coast's greatest manufac- 
turing progress, aside from those indus- 
tries natural to this section and those as 
the result of the decentralization of 
national manufactures, has followed 
the manufacturing agent and factory 
branches which came as a sort of outpost 
building up demands for their particular 
line of gooils. 

The warehouse was next established, 
followed by a branch factory when the 
market justifies. These initial factories 
are again followed by elaborate expansion 
programs which in many cases have more 
than duplicated the original factory in- 
vestment.

In northern Cahfornia: motor car in-

rubber tire manufacture, ceramic stone 
and clay manufacture, chemical manu-

Many of the branch plants recently 
built in southern California are branches 
of industries already established in north- 
ern California. Thus we find a decentrali- 
zation of even the Pacific Coast industries 
where the economic minimum will 
justify.

mands on the Treasury of the United 
States, that the present government be- 
gan the issuing of paper money. They 
were the old "demand notes." These 
were followed in 1S62, by the issue of 
United States notes commonly and 
facetiously referred to as "greenbacks," 
or "legal tenders." 

At the time the first demand notes and 
greenbacks w-ere printed, only private 
banking companies W'ere equipped to 
print and engrave such securities. Con- 
tracts were let and the printing presses 
started to run. The finished product was 
shipped in batches to the Treasury De- 
partment where all the Federal Govern- 
ment did was to attach the signatures of 
the Registrar of the Treasury and the 
Treasurer of the United States and to 
affix the seal. The job was so stupendous 
that these two hard working officials 
could not begin to sign their names fast 
enough to fill the demand for the new 
medium of exchange. Thereupon a corps 
of clerks was engaged, authorized to sign 
the signatures of these officials and once 
again the counterfeiters found their work 
made easy. For with the variety of sig- 
natures on the various notes, no one could 
tell whether the green piece of paper 
handed them in pa>Tnent for value re- 
ceived was genuine or not. 

In the rush of the war, however, the 
Government could not take time to bother 
with such details until March. 1S62, when 
Congress authorized the imprinting of 
facsimile signatures on the notes in the 
Treasury Department from engraved 
plates. 

Later the same year Congress passed 
an act authorizing the Treasury Depart- 
ment to engrave and print such securities 
which it deemed inex-pedient to procure 
by contract. This act brought about the 
establishment of the Bureau of Engrav- 
ing and Printing on .\ugust 20, 1S62, 
with the employment of a chief of the 
bureau and one man and four women

assistants. All they did at first was to 
accept the finished product from the pri- 
vate bank note houses for the purpose of 
trimming, sealing, signing and separating 
of the one- and two-dollar notes. The ac- 
tual engraving of notes was begun in 
November of that year on a very small 
scale. It was not until 1894— thirty-two 
years after the Bureau was established — 
that the Bureau took over all the work of 
engraving and printing currency and 
postage stamps. 

Since its small beginning with six em- 
ployees back in 1862, the Bureau now 
employs more than 5000 men and women 
and at times the manufacturing plant 
works night and day. 

What happens when Uncle Sam de- 
termines to issue a new note or other 
security? 

A conference is called of the various 
government officials, and a general policy 
is outlined, as to the size and type of de- 
sign. A trained designer in the engraving 
division then submits a suggested model 
which is passed around the Treasury De- 
partment for criticism, finally reaching 
the Secretary of the Treasury for final 
approval. The design is then reproduced 
in soft steel by men who have specialized 
in the various kinds of engraving, such as 
portrait, vignette, ornamental, or letter. 
Thus, a number of men are employed to 
engrave the design of each note. Each 
engraver with a steel tool having a dia- 
mond-shaped point, known as a graver, 
and aided by a powerful magnifying glass, 
carefully carves his part of the design into 
the steel. He is conscious at all times that 
one false cut or slip of his tool or mis- 
calculation of width or depth of line, 
may destroy the artistic merit of his 
work and make vain the work of weeks 
or months of labor of himself and others. 
The original engraving, called a die, is 
then heated in cyanide of potassium and 
hardened by quickly dipping it into oil 
or brine. It is then placed on the bed of 
a transfer press and a cylinder of steel, 
called a roll, held fast by the levers of 
the press, is rolled over the die under 
great pressure until the soft steel of the 
roll is forced into the lines of the en-

graving, perfectly reproducing them in 
relief on the circumference of the roll. 
The impression on the die is thus trans- 
ferred to rolls which are hardened in the 
same manner as was the die. 

Again the design is transferred. This 
time from the roll to a steel plate by 
exactly the same method as was used to 
transfer the design from the die to the 
roll. The engraved plate, when hardened 
and cleaned, is ready then for the printer. 
A roll will duplicate an engraving a great 
many times before wearing out. In the 
meantime, the original engravings or 
dies are preserved for making new rolls. 

The use of distinctive paper has been 
one of the earliest safeguards to the notes 
and securities of the Government. It was 



first used when in October, 1862, the 
Treasury Department entered into a con-

tract for the manufacture of a special 
kind of membrane paper for the printing 
of currency. This t>'pe of paper later was 
abandoned and a distinctive fiber paper 
adopted which was used until 1879. 

From that day until 1885 a silk thread- 
ed paper was purchased and then the 
paper now in use was perfected. It is a 
distinctive paper finished on both sides 
and having a silk fiber embedded in it. It 
is manufactured in Massachusetts under 
the strictest supervision of the Federal 
Government. 

The printing process is followed 
throughout the bureau with the utmost 
care to prevent loss or theft. An absolute 
check is made every night of the stock 



on hand and no employee leaves the 
building until the books are balanced. 
Once an employee of the Bureau checks 
in in the morning, he must remain there 
until the closing hours at night. This 
means that no one can leave the building 
during the day not even for lunch, which 
is served inside upon a cooperative basis. 
From the moment the fresh paper is re- 
ceived from the mill, until the currency 
is put into circulation, the sheets and 
individual notes are counted time and 
again so that any loss that develops can 
be localized almost instantly. None of 
the employees are bonded but because of 
the precautions taken, losses are very 
rare. 



The average number of currency notes 
deUvered yearly is approximately 990,- 
000.000, although this year the number 
will be greater because of the new issue 
of currency. The average value of the 
annual dehver>' is 83.950.000.000. A 
year's printing, if laid end to end, would 
make four belts around the earth at the 
equator. Laid flat on top of each other, 
the notes printed in a year would make 
555 stacks, each as high as the Washing- 
ton Monument. 

The average cost of producing a paper 
note including the paper, is approximate- 
ly .9 of a cent. The average cost of pro- 
ducing a postage stamp is approximately 
one cent for 125 stamps.

The domestic light consumers on the 
Pacific Coast in 1928 totaled 1,846,580 
and equalled 10.48 per cent of the United 
States. 

The value of retail sales in the three 
coast states for si.xty-five commodities 
are estimated at $4,183,000,000. 

The number of savings depositors in 
the Pacific Coast states amount to 3,835,- 
022 or 7.96 per cent of the United States 
total. The savings deposits amount to 
$2,083,779,000 or 8.4 per cent of the 
United States total. 

An additional market of $2,082,310,- 
814 is available in the manufacturing in- 
dustries representing the cost of mate- 
rials and supplies, presumably, purchased 
at wholesale. These purchases are made 
by 15,200 manufacturing establishments. 
In addition to the western markets in 
the 11 western states, the Pacific Coast 
manufacturers can serve 25 million con- 
sumers between the Rocky Mountains 
and the Mississippi River at lower freight 
cost than from the Atlantic seaboard, and 
likewise distribution costs are lower to 
the Gulf and Atlantic seaboard, via Pan- 
ama Canal than from points in the upper 
Mississippi Valley. In addition, the Pa- 
cific Coast has shorter delivery time by 
eighteen days to Pacific Coast United 
States territories and the Orient than 
from the Atlantic Coast. 

The transportation facilities offered to 
Pacific Coast manufacturers located 
within the terminal area contiguous to 
the harbors of the Pacific Coast are not 
alone confined to the numerous trans- 
continental railway lines, but they are 
augmented by over one hundred steam- 
ship lines, eighty-nine of which make 
regular calls at San Francisco. 

Through the water transportation fa- 
cilities the raw materials of the entire 
world are practically at the door of the 
manufacturer, as in turn, the finished 
products of the manufacturer are at the 
market door of the world seaport. 

In addition there is an abundance of 
power on the Pacific Coast and natural 
gas is available in both northern and 
southern California manufacturing cen- 
ters, at rates attractive to the manufac- 
turer. Fuel oil has also been a vital force 
in building up the industrial growth of 
the Pacific Coast. 
LABOR 

Another contributing factor of impor- 
tance to the manufacturer is the con- 
tentment of the labor, resulting from the 
ideal living conditions and the low cost of 
living enjoyed by the Pacific Coast in- 
dustrial centers. 

San Francisco ranks first among the 
industrial centers of the United States 
from point of cost of living. Portland, 
Seattle and Los Angeles following, and 
all four leading the other manufacturing 
centers of the Middle West and East. 

These conditions together with the 
equable year round climate have devel- 
oped an atmosphere which is expressed 
in the efficiency of labor throughout the 
industrial activity; in some cases ranking 
as high as 20 per cent over eastern manu- 
facturing centers.

Perhaps the one place more than any 
other in which the casual observer -nould 
notice the enterprise of San Francisco 
business men is in the stores and shops 
These have ahvays been famous. Now, 
new department-store and shop build- 
ings e.xpress the modern style, while the 
remodeling of windows and interiors m 
older structures has helped to bring the 
mode moderne prominently to the fore. 
Everywhere the good display of merchan- 
dise lends sparkle to the scene and is 
winning friends for San Francisco. 

Every great merchandise center has 
had its distinctive, co-operative expres- 
sions. San Francisco has a number of 
them, all characteristic and resultful. 
Market Week is one of them, when mer- 
chants from all over the West come to 
San Francisco, at the in\ntation of her 
wholesalers and manufacturers, to e.x- 
amine new merchandise and to purchase 
for their stocks. The San Francisco 
Furniture E.xchange is another. This is 
housed in a fine eight-story building on 
New Montgomery Street. There is dis- 
played, as is proper for the furniture cen- 
ter of the West, not only San Francisco- 
made furniture, but also furniture from 
this country and abroad. 

The Apparel Center Building, another 
co-operative enterprise, evidences the or- 
ganized interest of San Francisco busi- 
ness in maintaining the style leadership 
of this city. 

Harbor Day, inaugurated with great 
success by the Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce this year, bids fair to become an 
outstanding annual event enlisting the in- 
terest of the whole city. 

Among other unique co-operative ac- 
tivities are the Pacific Coast Toy Fair 
in May, the San Francisco Style Shows 
and the decorating and illuminating of 
streets and buildings during the Christ- 
mas holidays. 

In every contact with her, San Fran- 
cisco discloses the easy grace and natural 
charm of her cosmopolitanism. She has 
background, tradition, sophistication and 
a fine dignity brilliantly relieved by her 
young-soulcd joy of living. With her 
growth and development, she becomes 
more metropolitan every day. \'isiting 
business men say it is a pleasure to do 
business with her, because her men have 
ability and power, and are used to quick 
thinking and action. With the coming of 
I he Pacific Era, they see for her a future 
the like of which has been realized in 
only one other city in the United States 
— .\ew ^■ork. 

\isitors at the offices of Californians 
Inc. .say, "This is a city!" One sees re- 
Hected in it his New York, another his 
Paris. One says coyly, with music in her 
voice, "It is like Rio." All love San Fran-

required in the main plant of the concern. 
This rod stock is handled by heat treating 
facilities with automatic temperature 
control to give a uniform heat treated 
product. In addition there is installed an 
electric rotary hearth normalizing and 
heat treating unit for treating the cold 
headed product. All of these various units 
are individually motor-driven and every 
motor is remote controlled, and there is 
not an overhead shaft or belt in the place 
— thus bringing the possibility of indus- 
trial accidents to a minimum. 

Raw materials — the rod steel — are 
brought from the rolling mill to the bolt 
and nut mill by the concerns own indus- 
trial railway and delivered to a raised 
platform from which it is supplied to the 
machines. In the first processes of manu- 
facture the product is handled by gravity 
and from there on is handled in pans by 
means of lift hand trucks. The arrange- 
ment is such that a minimum of shoveling 
and hand lifting is necessary. 
PLANT REQUIRES MANY 
PRODUCTS 

Many local products are required for 
making this new plant's output from start 
to the cartoned or boxed finished product. 
Labels alone for the containers of the new 
products run into large figures. It is esti- 
mated that twenty million will be re- 
quired for one year's supply. An entire 
carload of cartons will be used every two 



months for packaging bolts, nuts, etc. 
Eight carloads of wooden boxes will be 
used every month. One hundred thousand 
gallons of Diesel oil are consumed by the 
new mill each month, and 200 gallons of 
lubricating oil are used every week. 

Although steel rods are the principal 
raw material used by the new Bolt and 
Nut Department, the making of these 
rods requires raw materials gathered from 
many parts of the West. 

The steel for the ingots from which 
the high tensile steel rods are rolled is 
made in two types of open hearth fur- 
naces, acid and basic. The former has 
the bottom lined with acid material such 
as silica, brick and sand. Pig iron and 
scrap melted in the acid furnace must be 
of very high grade because no phosphorus 
or sulphur can be removed. 

The basic open hearth furnaces used in 
the Pacific Coast Steel Company's plant, 
and which are the most largely used in 
the production of open hearth steel, are 
lined with basic material such as dolomite 
and magnesite. In the basic open hearth 
furnaces, phosphorus can be largely re- 
moved and sulphur partially so. 

An open hearth furnace is so called 
because the melting of the iron takes 
place on an open hearth composed of 
highly refractory material. The hearth is 
a rectangular basin surrounded with 
brick walls, with an arched roof nine to 
twelve inches thick. Underneath the fur- 
nace at each end are large rooms filled 
with brick work, the pattern of which is 
similar to a checker board, hence the 
name "Checker Chamber."

As the preheating of air is an essential 
part of all regenerative system where 
high temperatures are required for melt- 
ing iron, the checker chambers in open 
hearth practice act as a reservoir of heat 
to preheat the air used to burn the oil, 
which is the kind of fuel universally used 
in the production of open hearth steel on 
the Pacific Coast. The checkers are also 
so arranged as to readily permit the pass- 
age of the waste gases and air to and from 
the furnace through them. 

During the process of melting the 
flame after passing over the hearth enters 



the flues, from which it passes into the 
brick-filled chambers, heating the check- 
ers to a ver>' high temperature. After this 
process has continued in one direction for 
a period of IS to 20 minutes, the direction 
of the flame is reversed and air is ad- 
mitted to the heated chamber. 

After being preheated it passes up 
through the flues to the furnace hearth, 
where it meets the atomized stream of 
oil injected through burners located at 
each end of the furnace, this combination 
of the oxygen in the heated air and the 
oil making possible a complete combus-

tion necessary to produce the intense heat 
required in the process of refining the 
steel. 

To feed the maw of these great fur- 
naces fixed proportions of pig iron, scrap 
iron and steel, lime rock and coke are put 
into the furnace by means of an elec- 
trically operated charging machine. 

These are the materials which must be 
gathered from throughout the West. 

RAW MATERIALS 

Wherever scrap iron may be found, 
men are searching it out to be shipped to 
the South San Francisco steel mill, for 
the furnaces must be fed 2500 tons a 
month. Not only California, but Oregon 
and states as far distant as New Mexico 
contribute to this supply. Abandoned 
Cahfornia mines have regained some of 
their productiveness as the scrap iron 
which was once mining equipment is 
"mined" from them and shipped to the 
Pacific Coast Steel Company. The money 
paid for this scrap goes to the sellers in 
all parts of the West, providing work for 
men throughout the district. 

Thirdly, the dolomite, magnesite, lime 
rock and all of the other minerals neces- 
sary to the manufacture of steel must be 
quarried, all of them in California, giving 
employment to additional working crews 
throughout the state. These products, the 
scrap and minerals, must be shipped to 
South San Francisco and the finished 
products of the plant must in turn be 
shipped to customers throughout the Pa- 
cific Coast region, throwing new blood 
into the arteries of transportation and 
furnishing employment for additional 
men in the transportation business. 

MAKING THE STEEL 

When these materials arrive at the 
plant the scrap is sorted according to 
quality and the various materials to be 
combined for the making of steel are 
loaded into iron boxes on specially con- 
structed cars and carefully weighed so 
that the exact amount of material charged 
can be accurately ascertained. This is 
necessary to produce the fine quality 
necessary for the making of high tensile 
steel and to assist the chemists who test 
each "heat" of steel to maintain this 
high quality required. 

The cars are brought to the charging 
tloor where an electric machine with al- 
most human ingenuity picks up the boxes 
and empties them into the furnaces. 

When the skilled operators making the 
steel have determined that it has reachetl 
the required degree of refinenuiil the fur- 
nace is ready to be tapped ami the molten 
contents can he poured into huge ladles. 
These ladles then are carried by cranes to 
molds where it is poured into ingots. 

When cool, each ingot is given a heat 
number, corresponding to the numiier of 
the chemical analysis of the heat. These 
ingots are then moved by electrically 
operated cranes to the storage yard. 

From the storage yard the ingots are 
transported to the reheating furnaces 
where they are heated for rolling into 
rods or the various shapes u.sed in parts of 
the mill other than the Holt and Nut De- 
partment. 



September II, 1929 Ji.-- 



39 



When the heat of the ingot reaches the 
proper temperature it is discharged from 
the furnace and rapidly conveyed on elec- 
trically driven rollers to a traveling tilting 
table equipped with devises that guide 
the ingot into the first pass of the rolling 
mill where it is reduced to the size and 
shape of the groove through which it has 
passed. On emerging it is again mani- 
pulated by another table, passed and re- 
passed through other rollers until it has 
been reduced to the desired size and shape 
for making the various kinds of bolts, 
spikes, rivets, nuts, etc., to be made 
from it. 

The ends of these rods are then painted 
different colors in order that the bolt and 
nut mill operators may distinguish the 
different types of steel to be used in the 
manufacture of the various types of bolt 
and nut mill products. These rods are 
then ready for movement to the Bolt and 
Nut Department. 

MAKING BOLTS AND NUTS 

In the Bolt and Nut Department the 
rods are fed into automatic machines 
which cut and head the bolts or spikes 
either with or without head treatment 
dependent upon whether they are made 
by the hot or cold heading process. 

The rough bolts are heat treated to 
normalize the steel and preserve its 
strength. The bolts are then carried by 
electric lift tracks to a machine which 
finishes the heads. From this machine the 
bolt is taken to automatic threading 
machines which cut threads on the bolts. 

In the making of nuts a similar process 
is carried out. The rods are cut and holes 
stamped in the square pieces of steel from 
which nuts are made. The stamped steel 
is then finished and threaded and is ready 
for final inspection and packing. 

The bolts and nuts are carried by lift 
trucks to tables where the nuts are put 
on the bolts and the finished product is 
packed ready for shipping as the raw 
product for San Francisco's many steel 
product industries such as stove factories, 
machine works, and the many other in- 
dustries which use bolts, nuts and the 
various products of this new industry. 

THE VALUE OF THIS NEW 
DEVELOPMENT 

The reader can readily appreciate the 
dollars and cents value of this new indus- 
try to the community but its greatest 
value is the making possible of further 
developments in the steel industry. In a 
measure this is another basic develop- 
ment in San Francisco's epoc of steel, 
the growth of the industry from the 
waterfront blacksmith's forge to the 
rolling mill. Despite the fact that this 
industry has increased in the past 30 
years from a few thousand dollars' pro- 
duction per year to a total state produc- 
tion of almost four hundred million dol- 
lars but 20 per cent of the iron and steel 
products used on this coast are produced 
here. With this wide margin between 
production and consumption; with pig 
iron being made in our neighboring state 



of Utah from ore mined there; with our 
splendid working conditions, cheap power, 
natural gas and daily demonstrations that 
local industry can successfully meet east- 
ern and foreign competition in this field; 
even the most optimistic of us cannot 
foresee the tremendous developments in 
the many ramifications of the steel in- 
dustry which are coming and of which 
this new bolt and nut mill will be an im- 
portant part.

product in this city as the only manu- 
facturing branch of the Detroit, Michi- 
gan, ofSce. The manufacture of cigalite is

Canada and foreign countries. Mr. Bar- 
tholomew, of the local office, stated that 
at the present time this company occupies 
appro.timately 6000 square feet of floor 
space and employs 25 people. 

EXPANSIONS 

Increased business has necessitated the 
moving of the San Francisco branch of 
CHAS. CORY & SON, INC., New York 
City, manufacturers of marine lighting 
and signal equipment, to larger quarters 
at 224 Spear Street. The local branch 
has been maintained here for ten years 
and while the greater part of the manu- 
facturing is carried on at the home otTice 
in New York, a good portion of it is 
carried on here. The San Francisco 
branch is the only branch maintained by 
this company and from here the entire 
Pacific Coast is served. Agencies of the 
company are located at Seattle, Port- 
land, San Pedro, and Los Angeles. Mr. 
J. M. Lalor, Pacific Coast Manager, 
slated that this branch had established a 
Motor Department since the expansion 
and installeii new equipment in it. This 
concern occupies appro.ximatcly 10,000 
square feet of tloor space and employs 
from 20 to 40 people.

ize in the manufacture of ruffled curtains. 
This company has been located in ,San 
I'rancisco for about two years and main- 
tains its only office in this city where all

e.xistence and e.xpccts to double it again 
the first of the year. The Dean Manu- 
tacturing Company occupies appro.xi- 
niately .?000 sc|uare feet of tloor space

in the recent consolidation of the L. G. 



Henes Machinery Co. of San Francisco 
and Los Angeles and the Jenison Ma- 
chinerj' Company of San Francisco 
located at 58 Fremont Street. Through 
the combined efforts of the two com- 
panies, it will be possible for the L. G. 
Henes Machine Tool Division of the 
Jenison Machinery Company, as it is 
now called, to e.xtend its policv of service 
and satisfaction to its customers into 
broader fields than heretofore.

LEADERS IN FIRE PREVENTION WEEK 



Huge Campaign to Educate 
Public St arts O ctober Sixth 

FIRES are caused — they don't just happen!" 
San Francisco will learn the truth of this slogan during the week of October 
6 to 12 when the Fire Prevention Committee of the Jmiior Chamber of Com- 
merce swings into action with a week's campaign of public education. 
Since .luly 1, 1929. there have been more than two thousand fire alarms in San Fran- 
cisco, which is an average of more than thirty a day. Most of the fires were preventable 
by the exercise of simple precautions. How to prevent them will be the subject of fivc- 
minute radio talks each night during that week when executive officers of the Fire 
Department will enumerate the fires of the day and explain how each could have been 
prevented or losses minimized. 

As a part of the campaign, the committee will utilize speakers from the Fire De- 
partment and insurance companies who will address schools, churches, clubs and 
civic organizations. We have also been promised the cooperation of billboard adver- 
tising companies, newspapers, radio stations, street car companies and merchants 

through the use of their display windows. 
Several theatres have also agreed to run

FIRE CHIEF WILL ADDRESS 
ENTIRE BODY 

.\ special luncheon of the entire Junior 
Chamber membership will be held at 
iio.in. October 9, the location to be des- 
ignated at a later date. This luncheon 
«ill be addressed by Stale Fire Marshal 
.lay W. Stevens, who is recognized 
throughout the country as an authority 
on Fire Prevention matters and whose 
careei- starting as a hoseman in the Port- 
land Fire Department reads like a novel. 
Chief Stevens startled the entire fire en- 
gineering world by his accomplishments 
in Portland, Fresno, and other Pacific

Football Luncheons Planned 



The program committee of the .lunior 
Chamber has outlined programs of un- 
usual interest for the fall months, chief 
among them being the luncheon to in- 
augurate Fire Prevention Week, October 
() to 12. A most interesting program has 
been prepared with J. Stevens, State Fire 
Marshal, the speaker of the day. 

Plans are also under way for a series 
of football luncheons featuring sport talks 
by prominent coaches and sports writers. 
These programs will be inaugurated with 
the official opening of the gridiron season. 

The Oregon newspaper representatives 
visiting San Francisco this week were en- 
tertained by a tour of the city and the 
typical hospitality of San Francisco was 
commented on by the visitors.

first objective of the newly organi/ied In- 
dustrial Section of Ihe San Francisco 
Junior t^hanibcr of Commerce. Thi; data 
obtained will be used to Interest nuinu- 
fnclurers in locating plants in the bay 
district. 

In making this survey speakers will be 
invited to discuss the several phases of 
the Industry nl the regular meetings of the 
Industrial Section. The first meeting was 
held In Ihe Coniniercial Club on Septem- 
ber l.'l. Apprii.xlnialely one hundred nieni- 
bors of the Inilnstrlal Section were In 
allenduuce. Wllllain <i. Marvin, in speak- 
ing on the "Inrluslrlal l-osslhillties of the 
San I'Vanclsco May Area," said, "what we 
lark Is an nllve inilnstrlal rousrirntious- 
iie.Hs In the niinils of San Franciscans who

of Ihe IJisl." 

lie coninien<le<l the Junior Clianilier on 
its plan to develop and illssenilnate in- 
rornnilloii that could be used by these 
business e.xectillves. He also staled, "there 
is too nuicli conipetitlon between com- 
innnltles ini Ihe bay. The llnii' has come 
for nu)re conperalion." lli> stressed the 
fact that there were racllltles available 
in the coiniuunlly sinriiunding the hay 
that would meet Ihe re(|ulrenients of 
many nianufaclunrs desiring to locale 
a plaiil on Ihe l-arlllr Coast. Marvin 
urged the necessity of a inurli broader 
vision In business, a realisation llial the 
growtli of San I'raiirlsco Is linked wltli 
Ihe developmrni and prosperity of nil the 
surrounding territory. He suggested thai 



the following be ineludid in a program 
for the development of the bay area: 
The mapping out of the land around Ihe 
bay available for industrial expansion 
and analyzing it as to its industrial possi- 
bilities; the provision of cheap water 
Ihrougli the formation of water conserva- 
tion ilistrlcts and the early completion of 
the Hetch Hetchy project; the establish- 
ment of a rapid transit system down the 
Peninsula and adequate fire protection 
for industrial arras.

California Editors Acclaim 

Success of Harbor Day 

A review of the editorials in regard to 
Harbor Day brings out some exceedingly 
interesting comment. The .San Francisco 
"Recorder," for example, on September 9, 
printed an editorial some sixteen inches 
in length, which, while it compliments 
the Junior Chamber on Harbor Day, char- 
acterizes it as a "play-time job" and goes 
on to suggest further civic enterprises 
that would make the seven tasks of Her- 
cules seem mere recreation. In the words 
of the editorial: 

"The success of Harbor Day, orisinated 
and managed by the Junior Chamber of 
Commerce, is an indication that San 
Francisco is at last developing an organ- 
ization with vision and the willingness 
and the ability to make its dreams come 
true. San Francisco has long needed such 
an organization." 

The editorial then goes on to point out 
some of the needs of .San Francisco, such 
as a bay bridge, tide-flat fills for inilu.s- 
trial sites, an uptown railroad terminal, 
a subway system, and concludes with the 
statement that 

"San Francisco looks with confidence to 
the Junior Chamber of Commerce not to 
be satisfied with its successful origina- 
tion and conduct of Harbor Day ... but 
to take the lead in developing a progres- 
sive policy for the advancement of the 
city . . . ". 

Even Los Angeles noticed Harbor Day 
in its editorial columns. "The News" on 
August 22 carried an article that was fine 
in spite of its left-handed compliments, as 
"Los Angeles may display more human 
enterprise in changing a mud flat into 
waterways and docks for vast shipping 
interests. But Deity made San Francisco 
Harbor . . ■ Los Aageles felicitates San 
Francisco on her natural assets and the 
use she has made of them." 

The "Bulletin" on August 23 started an 
editorial with this paragraph: 

"Harbor Day has come and gone. Once 
more the Junior Chamber of Commerce, 
which looked after making the event the 
success that it was. showing the fine type 
of organization that it is, proved the pep, 
determination and ability of the young 
men that make up the organization's 
membership." 

Ill the San Francisco "Chronicle" on the 
day following, we found this one: 

"Harbor Day was a «ne idea ... We 
like the buoyant aggressiveness of th 
young men. Their impatience of conser- 
vatism is refreshing in a city which too 
long has been content with Bret Harte's 
line, 'Serene, indifferent of fate.' 
"More power to them." 
This is but a representative bit of the 
editorial comment for which the Junior 
Chamber is indebted to the newspapers. 
There was not a word of criticism in all 
the editorials, the general feeling seems 
to be that the Harbor Day was a success 
and a good start; that there were innu- 
merable other civic duties to perform and 
that the sky had uo limit.

International Florists Invited 
To San Franci sco for 1930 

The San Francisco Junior Chamber of 
Commerce, cooperating with other civic 
organizations of the city, initiated a 
movement last week to bring to this city 
the 1930 convention of the International 
Florists Telegraph Delivery Association, 
which meets this year in Boston. 

The Junior Chamber Publicity Com- 
mittee sent back to the florists' conven- 
tion a floral plaque bearing a key to the 
(iolden Gate set over a replica of the 
Ferry Building, and emblazoned upon it 
was the inscription : 

"The San Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce invites the world's florists in 1930." 

This floral piece will be presented to 
the Boston convention by Angelo J. Rossi, 
a director of the International Florists 
Telegraph Delivery Association. Rossi is 
the official representative of the San 
Franci.sco Junior Chamber, the Down 
Town Association and the . Tourists' 
League in the plan to bring the next 
florists' convention here. 



California Audition 

Co ntest Opens 

Tlie San Francisco audition of the Third 
National .Vtwater-Kent Radio Audition 
will be held in the Commercial Club, Mer- 
chants Exchange Building, on September 
19, under the auspices of the Junior 
Chamber. The Radio Committee of the 
Junior Chamber of which John J. HefTer- 
nan is chairman, reports that applications 
to participate are being received by his 
committee in large numbers. The winners 
of the local audition will compete in the 
state audition for the honor of represent- 
ing California in the National Audition. 
Those desiring to enter the contest may 
obtain application blanks from the Junior 
Chamber. 



New Fire Prevention 

Ordinance to Be Submitted 

After numerous weeks of work on the 
part of the Fire Prevention Committee of 
the Junior Chamber and its technical ad- 
visory board, a modern fire prevention 
ordinance is about to be submitted to our 
Board of Supervisors for tlieir enactment. 
The committee studied ordinances used 
by many other American cities, consulted 
legal authorities, and fire executives of 
other cities, and out of all of this has been 
drawn up an ordinance that will give 
the San Francisco Fire Prevention Bureau 
reasonable authority to back up its ef- 
forts in eliminating fire hazards. 

This ordinance will also give the Fire 
Prevention Bureau authority to inspect 
buildings, to order the correction of 
hazardous conditions and to force the 
carrying out of its orders. 

It is thought that most people will 
correct the hazardous coiiditi<ins when 
pointed out to them, and the authority 
with which the bureau is hi be vested will 
only be necessary in aggravated cases. 
A Board of Appeal will be provided for. 

The committee, therefore, requests the 
wholehearted support of the entire mem- 
bership of the Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce at the time this new ordinance is 
presented for enactment. 

Junior C. of C. Seeks Steam- 
ship Co. Representatives 

With the success of "Harbor Day" still 
in the minds of the Membership Commit- 
tee of the Junior Chamber, the nieinliers 
have made a concentrated drive on steam- 
ship firms of San Francisco. The results 
have been very promising. 

In solicitating new members, the com- 
mittee has been very careful to select men 
who will be real workers for the Junior 
Chamber and for San Francisco. With 
this policy the committee cannot help but 
succeed in filling our mciiibersliip with 
the highest calibre of youug men. 



Commission's Sanction Sought to 
Abolish "Toonerville" Trolley 

Reginald K. Vaughn will intervene be- 
fore the State Railroad Commission, rep- 
resenting the Junior Chamber, for the 
purpose of securing the Commission's 
sanction for the abandonment of the cable 
car service on Paciflc Avenue which is 
now being operated by the Market Street 
Railway Company. 

This will culminate a campaign that 
has been conducted by the Municipal Af- 
fairs Committee during the past year to 
secure the discontinuance of the sliort car 
service and to hasten the boulevarding of 
Pacific Avenue. 

Fire Hazard Move Starts,,, 

[ continued from page 1 J 

Members of the Junior Commerce can 
cooperate by placing posters which will 
be furnished by the committee and by 
helping to fill out the Home Inspection 
Blanks, of which 100,000 will be distri- 
buted to school children, and also by 
inspecting their own premises for fire 
hazards. The Boy Scouts are cooperating 
by distributing posters to schools and 
neighborhood stores. Several pieces of 
fire apparatus will be stationed at down- 
town corners to display various hazards 
and also to show the workings of the fire 
alarm boxes. 

INITIAL RESULTS GRATIFYING 

The committee feels particularly proud 
of its activities to date, an example being 
the increase of personnel in the San Fran- 
cisco Fire Prevention Bureau of the Fire 
Department from three to seventeen men 
as a result of its recommendations. 

In all respects, the San Francisco Fire 
Department has shown itself alert and 
ready to .follow up any development 
which might tend to lessen fire hazards. 

The committee believes that with the 
support of the people of our city, the .San 
Francisco Fire Department will produce 
startling results along fire prevention 
lines.

"The Interstate Commerce

an Francisco would in a sense 
)se its present geographic posi-

refuges was brought up for 
discussion. 

Attention was called to the 
fact that the Spring Valley 
Water Company has consis- 
tently maintained its water- 
shed properties as sanctuaries 
for wild game and that it was 
highly desirable, when these j 
properties are taken over by j 
the City and County of San 
Francisco under the recent 
bond issue, that the same policy 
be maintained. 

By resolution by the Board

World Trade at a Glance! 



Commercial transactions, as 
reflected by the volume of 
check payments covering the 
week ended September 21, were 
considerably larger than in 
either the preceding week or 
the corresponding period of 
192S, according to the weekly 
statement of the Department 
of Commerce. Operations in 
steel plants continued to reflect 
further recession as compared 
with recent weeks, but were on 
a higher level than at this time 
last year. The production of 
bituminous coal during the 
latest reported week was greater 
than in either the preceding 
week or the same period of a 
year ago. Crude petroleum pro- 
duction also showed gains over 
both periods. The receipts of 
cotton into sight were some- 
what smaller than a year ago. 
Cattle receipts at primary mar- 
kets showed a decline from last 
year, while receipts of hogs 
showed a gain. The movement 
of commodities into consump- 
tion, as reflected by data on 
freight-car loadings, covering 
the latest reported period, con- 
tinued above the corresponding 
period of 1928. 

Tlie general level of whole- 
sale prices was fractionally 
lower than in the preceding 
week and showed a decline of 
about 4 per cent from the same 
period of hist year. Iron and 
steel prices and prices for cop- 
per sliowed no change from 
the preceding week but were 
liigher tlian a year ago. Cotton 
prices were lower tlian in the 
preceding week, but sliowed a 
fractional gain over last year, 
liank loans and discounts 
sliowed expansion as compared 
witli both tlic preceding week 
and tlie same period of 1928. 
Interest rates on call funds 
averaged higlier than in either 
lieriod, while rates on time 
money, showing no change 
from llic previous week, were 
liiglier than a year ago. Stock 
prices showed a gain ns com- 
pared with the preceding week, 
being higher also than n year 
ago. Prices for bonds sliowed 
no change from the previous 
week, but were lower than Inst 
year. lUlslness liiihires were 
liss muiienius llian in either 
the previous week or llie >anie 
period of 1928. 



World market conditions 
summarized from cables and 
radio reports received In the 
Department of Commerce:

enuntry this week hiive re- 
lieved the drought so that If 
nilnfall Is normal from now 
on a good crop of ci-reals may 
be expected. Optimism Is more 
prevalent generally and pros- 
pects seem better for sjirlng 
trade. Thus far Unseed has 
Mill'ered most froin lack of rain 
with heat next, corn having 
been alfected very Utile. 

Ai;ST«AI,lA 
General conditions and out- 
look In Australia are still less 
vMtlsfactory than at this time 
iMst month. The low opciiing 



of wool prices, the continuation 
and extension of the coal dead- 
lock, and the continuation of a 
serious drouglit in New South 
Wales, particularly in wheat 
areas, are causing banks to ad- 
vise caution. Business is dull 
in all lines except seasonal 
merchandise and all stocks are 
heavy. Unemployment is on the 
increase. 

Farmers in New South Wales 
have again rejected the com- 
pulsory wheat pool. Prospects 
for heavy wheat production in 
western Australia arc expected 
to partially offset the poor out- 
look in certain eastern states. 
Commodity lines are generally 
quiet. Lumber is dull with lit- 
tle improvement over August. 
The demand in Queensland is 
slightly better but in Victoria 
and New South Wales it con- 
tinues slow. 

Automotive trade is quiet 
witli seasonal improvement un- 
satisfactory and stocks of new- 
models are generally large. 

The demand for solvents is 
strong. Trade in insecticides is 
slower and drugs and toilet 
preparations are feeling the 
cll'ect of reduced buying power. 

BRAZIL 
Business continues dull with 
banks reporting little demand 
for money. Santos colTce stocks 
are very low with a large per- 
cenlagi' of low grade colfee. 

CANADA 
Lower levels are reported in 
the August foreign trade of the 
Dominion, with respect to both 
imports and exports. In im- 
ports, a recession of two per 
cent from the total established 
In August last year is attri- 
buted to reduced purchases of 
farm implements, automobiles 
and automobile parts, in con- 
nection with which it is noted 
that the month's production by 
Canadian automotive plants 
was the smallest yet recorded 
in 1929. A fourteen per cent 
decline In exports Is the result 
of declines in the overseas 
movement of wheal and llour, 
oats, barley and rye. Silver, 
lead and zinc exports were also 
low In comparison with last 
year but other non-ferrous oies 
and smeller products, particu- 
larly aluminum, copper and 
nickel, made large gains. Au- 
gust production of Canadian 
steel companies reflects the con- 
tinued strength In the local 
iron iinil steel market, the out- 
put <if pig Iron. II2..''>28 long

favorably with .luly i>ut|>ut,

still 38 per cent larger than In 
August of 1928. 

imiTISlI MALAYA 

General business conditions 
In llrlllsh Malaya continued 
dull (luring the past month 
but dealer failures are now- 
more Infreiiuenl. The area ap- 
pears 111 be iKlJuslIng Itself to 
the changed conditions which 
have resulted from low rubber 
prices. Stocks which accumu- 



lated from general over-buying 
earlier in the year are now be- 
ing worked off satisfactorily in 
all lines except textiles. At the 
present time there appears no 
ground for great optimism or 
acute pessimism regarding the 
market outlook. Malayan rub- 
ber production this year is now 
generally admitted locally to 
be over 420,000 long tons, and 
local opinion is becoming 
pessimistic. September exports 
are expected to reach about 
48,000 tons. Malayan produc- 
tion is being maintained, and 
more Dutch native rubber is 
coming out as a result of 
slightly higher local prices. 
Automotive conditions show an 
improvement over August 
throughout the territory witli 
the exception of the Penang 
district. Intensive selling cam- 
paigns being conducted by fac- 
tory representatives are result- 
ing in larger sales of popular 
.\morican medium priced cars. 
Used car stocks are increasing. 
Truck sales are also larger than 
during the preceding month. 

DENM.\RK 

A recent Danish survey 
shows that 13,800 small farms 
have been established through 
grants and state loans since the 
llrst "Small Holdings Act" was 
passed in 1899. Under this Act 
and similar Acts of later date 
energetic and thrifty farm la- 
borers are encouraged to take up 
land resulting from subdivision 
of entailed estates and reclama- 
tion of land. Liberal loans at 
low rates of interest are ad- 
vanced for erection of build- 
ings, purchase of stock and im- 
plements, and for cultivation 
of the .soil. So far loans and 
grants made by the government 
amount to about 110.000,000 
crowns (.$37,380,000). The total 
area covered by these small 
farms aggregate .33,000 hectares 
(81,543 acres). 

INDIA 

General economic conditions 
in India have show-n consider- 



able improvement during the 
last month. Bank clearances 
have been larger, imports and 
exports active, and the princi- 
pal markets have enjoyed a 
better undertone. Progress of 
the Monsoon, however, is con- 
sidered somewhat less favor- 
able. Some areas have suffered 
from continued floods while 
wind and droughts have been 
prevalent in others. Tlie Bom- 
bay cotton mill situation is now 
virtually normal and business 
in that section has been greatly 
aided. The Calcutta area has 
also been improved by tlie 
cessation of labor difficulties 
in that area. Monetary condi- 
tions in India have been dis- 
tinctly improved. Call funds 
have arisen to 2 per cent and 
the Imperial Bank rate remains 
unchanged at 5 per cent. The 
government announced on Sep- 
tember 10 a temporary suspen- 
sion of further sales of treasury 
bills. Subscriptions for postal 
cash certificates have reached 
an unusually high figure ow- 
ing to the better yield offered. 
.Sterling exchange is generally 
steadier with an increased vol- 
ume of trading. Gold has been 
dull and featureless w-ith in- 
consequential price changes. 
The position of cotton mill 
shares has been considerably 
improved and miscellaneous 
shares have steadied in sym- 
pathy, .lute and tea shares 
have been most active at the 
Calcutta market. 

ni:therland east indies 

General business conditions 
continue fairly steady, though 
iinpoi'ters throughout the Neth- 
erland East Indies report in- 
creasing difficulty with col- 
lections and tightness in retail 
money. Despite widespread 
dullness in retail nuirkets, how- 
ever, imports continiu' heavy, 
aHd Indications of accumulat- 
ing stocks are creating cau- 
tiousness among Importers gen- 
erally. Trode In staple lines

PANAJIA 
All countries between the 
(Canadian and Colojbian bor- 
ders, with the exception of 
Mexico whose road building 
program is well advanced, have 
accepted the invitation to par- 
ticipate in the international 
road conference to be held in 
Panama during October. The 
government and all civic bodies 
are cooperating closely and are 
arranging a tour of the isthmus 
by every modern means of 
transportation. The program 
is to include a road tour to the 
interior over the Panama liigh- 
w-ay, an excursion through the 
Panama Canal and sightseeing 
trips by a tri-motored plane. 

.. PHILIPPINE ISL.VNDS 

Usually heavy rainfall was 
experienced in the Philippines 
dui'ing .-Vugust, but business 
.was satisfactory considering 
the season. Credits and collec- 
tions were normal. Prospects 
for the current month are good 
though the general trend of 
trade may be influenced by wet 
w-eatlier. A local company has 
been organized to manufacture 
mechanical rubber goods using 
Philippine rubber and. accord- 
ing to reports, will commence 
operations in November. The 
Philippine Lumber Export As- 
sociation has adopted a stand- \

after that of the National

actuated by the same desire— gold. Not alone from 
our own Atlantic Coast, but also from the principal 
ports of the world they came, in 598 American and 
58 foreign vessels which dropped their anchors in 
the spacious waters of San Francisco Bay. So 
great was the lure of the yelloM' metal, officers and 
crews deserted their vessels, often not even wait- 
ing to receive their wages, and many a sturdy hulk 
was left to rot its timbers in the bay. Gradually 
word went out to the world that here was a won- 



derful landlocked harbor surrounded by hills, fed 
by several navigable streams, safe for vessels of 
any draught and large enough to accommodate 
the ocean-going fleets of the entire world. Although 
nature had provided well, it was immediately ap- 
parent than man-made ships required man-made 
wharves, and during May, 1849, a "Wharf Asso-

the same year 800 feet of it was finished. In June,

succession, among tliem Market Street Wharf, (iOO 
feet long; California Street Wharf, 100 feet h^ig; 
Howison's Pier, 1100 feet long; Sacramento Street 
Wharf, SOO feet long, and Clay Street Wharf. 900 
feet long. 

During 1810 a small iron steamer. "The Pio- 
neer," was brought in i)ieces from Boston and 
started to ply tiie Sacramento River. This vessel 
was the forerunner of wiiat was soon to be a size- 
able tleet of i)av and river craft. 



For a time the demand for goods greatly ex- 
ceeded the supply and exhorbitant prices were the 
rule. Shipowners vied with each other in making 
fastest possible voyages, in order that goods might 
he sold before a surplus of merchandise brought 
prices to a lower level. Speed meant everything. 
F>ven a day's delay might mean seriously depleted 
])rofits and so the famt)us California clipper slii])s 
came into being. 

Marvelous vessels these, with their sharp bows, 
raking and lofty sparred masts with double \.o\)- 
sails ami skysails and graceful hull lines. Tluy 
were designed and rigged for fast sailing, and 
many a cli]5]ier's log contained records that are not

even now exceeded by modern 
steam freighters. Many a wager 
was placed by admirers of skip- 
per or ship and so confident were 
shippers in the abihty of masters 
and crew, and sturdiness of ves- 
sels, they accorded them cargoes 
worth millions. 

Some of the outstanding per- 
formances of these California 
clippers were, "Sovereign of the 
Seas" — San Francisco to New 
York — made 6425 miles in 22 
days, averaging 283.9 miles per 
day — greatest distance traversed 
noon one day to noon next day, 
419 miles; "Flying Cloud" — two 
voyages, New York to San Fran- 
cisco, 89 days each; "Andrew 
Jackson," two voyages, New 
York to San Francisco, 89 and 
100 days, respectively; "Flying 
Fish," two voyages, New York to 
San Francisco, 92 and 98 days, respectively; 
"Sword Fish," two voyages. New York to San 
Francisco, 92 and 98 days, respectively. There 
were many others, about 100 in all, equally famous 
but the above will serve to illustrate some of their 
records. 

In 1849, 774 vessels cleared from Atlantic ports 
for San Francisco; 242 ships, 218 barques, 170 
brigs, 132 schooners, and 12 steamers. New York 
sent 214 vessels, Boston 151, New Bedford 42, 
Baltimore 38, New Orleans, 32, Philadelphia 31, 
Salem 23, Bath 19, Bangor 13, New London 17, 
Providence 11, Eastport 10, and Nantucket 8. Al- 
most every seaport along the Atlantic Coast sent 
one or more vessels, and they all carried passen-

land, Ohio, for San Francisco via the Biver St. 
Lawrence, September 28, 1849, and carried fifty- 
three passengers, among whom were two families 
from Cleveland. Many of these vessels never 
reached California; some of them put into ports 
of refuge disabled and in distress; while others 
were never heard from. 

Bomance there will ever be in shipping, but it is 
doubtful whether any craft, past, present, or yet 
to be, will equal the romance which attached to 
these California clippers. There was romance in 
their very names. "(Uory of the Seas," "Light- 
ning," "Argonaut," "Blue Jacket," "Challenge,"

master with master, mate with

times shanghaied — vied with 
crew, all inspired with this same 
thought, SPEED. The hardy 
crews, recruited from all walks 
of life and representing many 
nationalities, were in striking 
contrast to the masters, who 
strutted ashore in their high silk 
bats and gold braid. The work 
was haril, and the food, what 
there was of it, was coarse, but 
despite this they were a happy 
lot and as they made or shortened 
sail they lustily sang their favor- 
ite chanty.

WESTERN 

Industrial 

Development 



[ 



An address before the Western 
Divisional meeting of the Chamber 
of Commerce of the United States. 



] 



®y Frederick J. Koster 



WE arc a unit of the groat national or- 
t^anization of business, the United 
States Chaml)er of Commerce. 
We constitute its Western Division. 

I wish to impress this upon you because it is the 
basis of and is related to everythini» that I shall say. 

We are all of the West and imbued with a west- 
ern attitude. 

The subject of "Western Industrial Develop- 
ment" is a very broad one with a threat variety of 
angles, and the first consideration of this su])ject 
must be from the standpoint of liclieving in the 
creation of a western solidarity. 

Let us consider what are the fundamentals of 
the development of industry; raw materials; trans- 
portation; power; labor supply, existing or poten- 
tial; circumstances favorable for human life; and 
markets. 

Today, in these eleven western states and Ha- 
waii, we have a total population of between eleven 
and twelve millions, or about 9", of the population 
of the United States. 

There are those of us who strongly lielievc that 
we constitute a social and economic unit, that our 
interests are primarily bound together. I l)elieve it 
can be demonstrated that in major part, this is true. 

This area is wide in extent, covering more than 
one-third of the area of our country. The great- 
est development has taken place, quite naturally, 
along the Pacific Coast, and markedly, in the State 



of California. The Panama Canal and the oppor- 
tunities for comparatively economic sea transpor- 
tation up and down and across the Pacific have 
greatly favored the Pacific Coast. 

The region between the Pacific Coast and the 
Rocky Mountains is being subjected to a twofold 
influence: the gradual expansion from the East 
westward, and a like expansion from the West 
eastward. There is, however, a much more intense 
interest, and one that carries with it a much more 
sympathetic attitude, on the part of the far West 
towards what it naturally considers its "hinter- 
land." There is a very natural bond of sentiment 
that draws all of us western peoples together. 

In this far western country, nature has provided 
a great abundance and a great variety of natural 
resources, many exceptionally favorable condi- 
tions, and a vast number of attractions. Through- 
out this West are rare scenic beauties. There is 
much to attract the tourist and the vacationist. The 
tourist and the vacationist are not negligible fac- 
tors. This has been emphatically proven by Los 
Angeles, the product of whose annual tourist crop 
has been a great and rapidly increasing, perma- 
nent population, with industrial development upon 
a large and ever-increasing scale. I do not intend 
to convey that this is due alone to the tourist, but 
in a very considerable measure, it is the case. 

Agriculture, horticulture, mineral development 
and industry go hand in hand. Each is more or

KEEPING

W'lien one views your niagniiiccnl l)uil(iin|L*s, 
your l)usy, hustling harhor witii its commerce 
fioin all points of the compass, your well-kept 
parks and boulevards, your strong financial insti-

wonder that Sir Francis Drake, famed l^nglisii

only from the viewpoint of nature, but commerce 
as well. Could Sir I-'rancis return hut foi- a day and

,\n(l I'm amazed, too, every lime I I'elurn and

ways just outdoor advertising. The shimmering, 
quivering letters of animated Neon that dazzle and 
dumbfound modern business Belshazzers and 
their feasters read: 

"Have a lookout in your 
business or look out!" 

Charts, instruments and in- 
creased scientific knowledge 
have enhanced the ease of 
navigation since the day that 
Columbus, at the stupendous 
cost of $6000, discovered 
America, but still the ancient 
or modern mariner who sails into uncertain seas 
to a safe haven beyond, excites the world's just 
admiration. 

One of the indispensables of the Santa Maria 
and Leviathan — and all intervening ships alike — 
so unchanging is the practice — is an unfailing 
lookout. 

Up in the bow stands this human safety device, 
constantly alert. As he peers into the gloom, the 
fog, or the distant blue of the horizon, no speck, 
no unusual motion, no strange object escapes his 
attention. It may be a float- 
ing buoy, a derelict, an ice- 
berg, or even a mirage, but 



Mr. Lonsdale was a recent visitor to San 
Francisco, and an outstanding figure at 
the convention of the Americati Bankers 
Association of which he was elected presi- 
dent. The accompanying article is from 
an address which he delivered last week 
before the San Francisco Chamber of 
Commerce and the Commercial Club. 



than now; the changes were hardly perceptible in 
a lifetime, so remote were the contacts of the peo- 
ple of the earth. But now, witness the kaleidoscopic 
speed with which changes 
come. Within your memory 
and mine, the automobile, the 
airplane, the telephone, the 
wireless, the radio and elec- 
trical wonders in general have 
made the world's pulse-beat 
one. Flappers, jazz, bridge, 

dog-races, talkies — oh, the 

garish flare and turmoil of the 
passing show that demands speed, action, ever 
something new! In spite of the laws of human 
beings, this old world gets gayer, giddier, more 
agile, as the years pile up. Today's setting sun 
scarcely knows what it will vision on 
the morrow. Overnight come drastic 
developments that revolutionize cus- 
toms and styles, commerce and indus- 



^ 




until it begins as a speck on 
the bow and fades away over 
the taffrail, a disappearing 
speck, it engages the attention 
of this lookout because of the threatening possi- 
bilities every object at sea may be to a completely 
safe voyage. 

At no time in the history of American business 
has there been cause for keener outlook, for 
deeper perception, for more judicial judgment of 
the specks on the horizon that may become moun- 
tains of obstruction, or the way to greater busi- 
ness success. 

Progress once was more of a gradual transition 



try, science and inven- 
tion. No one likes to 
be under this sort of 
economic pressure, but modern business is con- 
stantly under the stress of change — of the old 
versus the modern. To mix business with the 
poetry of Pope: 

To "Be not the first by whom the new is tried. 
Nor yet the last to lay the old aside," 
is the worry that rests uneasily upon the wrinkled 
brow of business. 

To keep from trailing with the extremists; to 
be modern, but not ultra; to be artistic, but not 
futuristic; to be pink, but not red; to be up to date, 
rather than out of date, puzzles men who a few 
years ago grew up with an industry and felt secure 
in the precedents of a long established success. No 
business is too old, or too young, but that the pro- 
cession can pass it over night. 

The contest of business was never keener; the 
electrician wants to take the ice man's place; lum- 
ber pushes cement for favor; then oranges versus

You, export executives, wtio are looking 
to increased sales in foreign markets for 
the varied and useful commodities pro- 
duced in this fortunate land, must view 
with delight the commanding position of the 
west coast, both in a geo- 
graphic and economic 
sense. 

Economically, few 
world areas are so richly 
endowed as this strip of 
land bounded on the east^ 




by the Rockies and on the 
west by the Pacific Ocean. 
You have almost inex- 
haustible natural re- 
sources, metals, oils, tim-

But let me emphasize regarding Pacific trade. 
Leading economists and trade experts, not only 
in the L'nited States but in many countries, esti- 
mate that the centres of world trade are shifting 
to the West. In the future, perhaps within our own 
generation, we shall see this coast on a par with 
the older and more thoroughly industralized 
Atlantic Seaboard as a shipper of manufactured 
goods and natural products, to other nations — as 
a distributor of commodities on this continent. 

Early this year I spent some months in Europe. 
It was impressive and sometimes a bit saddening, 
to pass through those nations — Greece, Italy and 
Turkey and Ihe old Byzantine Empire — formerly 
supreme in shipping and the exchange of goods

Everywhere I was met with evidences of Ameri- 
can enterprises. In Rome I rode around sii»htseeins^ 
in a handsome American Packard limousine; in 
(ireece I purchased a Wahl Ever-Sharp pencil; in 
Constantinoi)le I saw a very frowzy Turk smoking 
a Camel cigarette; in Cairo I had a hottle of Canada 
Dry Ginger Ale. (One is advised not to drink water 
in Cairo if you want to keep your health, hut, of 
course, that is one country where you do not have 
to take your ginger ale straight.) In Paris I at- 
tended the protiuction of a motion picture made 
in Hollywood; in Venice, where I had expected to 
hear gondolier songs, I heard instead some excel- 
lent radio programs over American-made receiv- 
ing sets; in Monte Carlo I saw a man from Mon- 
tana trying to hreak the hank, and a California n 
who had. Everywhere the name of America was 
heard. The French think you have charged them 
too much for war purchases; the Italians can- 
not understand why you 
drink coco cola in pref- 
erence to chianti. All Eu- 
ropeans look to America 
for leadership. On my re- 
turn I looked at America 
through new eyes and 
with new appreciation, 
realizing your immediate 
and potential jjower in 
world trade. 

All of you fully realize, 
I am sure, that foreign 
trade is of vast import- 
ance in maintaining na- 
tional prosjjerity. Any ef- 
fort you put forth to de- 
velop foreign fields will 
not he wasted. 

The margin hetween prosperity and insolvency 
is a paper wall — like the narrow division hetween 



^^% 









success and failure. A falling off of even 5'/, in 
exports, may seriously disturh industrial condi- 
tions, particularly in the United States, where 
manufacturing is geared to mass production, hased 
Z-h^ on the specific knowledge of do- 

mestic and foreign requirements. 
If purchases from foreign sources 
decrease hy even r>'/, it must 
mean, inevitably, the decrease by 
a like amount of producing 
operation. There are two al- 
ternatives: 

The first is a cutting down in 
employment. 

The second a decrease in 
prices. In the latter event, re- 
maining sales must carry the in- 
creased burden of payment of 
taxes, interest on invested capi- 
tal, sinking funds and deprecia- 
tion — all fixed charges which go 
on in relatively the same ratio 
irrespective of the volume of 
output. The natural corollary would, of course, 
be an increase in the cost of living. 

If employment is decreased it follows that the 
national purchasing power must suffer, for a sec- 
tion of workers have been deprived of their in- 
come. This in turn disturbs domestic distributing 
markets, which consecpiently order less from the 
wholesalers. The latter are obliged to reduce pur- 
chases from original sources. Installment buying 
must diminish and credit be contracted. The chain 
is endless and all within that chain must suffer. 

The Pacific Foreign Trade Council has this re- 
sponsibility — of maintaining foreign trade at a 
high level in order to insure that the standard of 
living for all classes be maintained. To maintain 
an increased trade with any country we must rec- 
ognize that the prosperity of such countries is 
essential to the selling nation. To maintain an 
increased trade with customer nations we must 
recognize that their prosperity is to be desired. 
Otherwise they could not buy in volume.

GOLD -'^ HOOF 



SPONSORED by leading livestock, agricul- 
tural and industrial interests, educational 
in scope and destined to mark a new era 
in the development of the livestock indus- 
try in the West, the Second Annual California 
Livestock and Baby Beef Show will be held at the 
Union Stockyards, South San Francisco, Novem- 
ber 9 to 13. 

The main purpose of this livestock show is to 
stimulate an interest in the feeding and better 
finishing of livestock of all classes and to iill an 




economic need in the future development of the 
livestock industry in the western states and more 
especially California. 

The livestock industry in California has devel- 
oped into one of the leading industries of the state 
both from the standpoint of livestock production 
and meat packing. 

California leads the nation in the production of 
early milk lambs. In the spring of this year, more 
than 500,000 milk lambs were shipped from this 
state to eastern market centers, yet during many 
months of the year Pacific Coast packers must 
import fat lambs from outside states to take care 
of the consuming demand. 

Thousands of cattle are shipped into California 
to supply the winter demand for beef and coast 
jiackers are dependent upon eastern hog producers 
to furnish them with a great percentage of hogs 
necessary to supply the demantl for pork products. 

California produces tlie meat supply for her 
population about one-half of the calendar year. 
During the remainckn- provisioners must look to 
the outsiik^ for tiie daily meat re(|uiremcnls of our 
inetr()])olitan cities. 

Tile normal meat needs of llie bay region re- 
([uire more than two liundred carloads of livestock 
weekly. This is e(}uivalent to four train loads of 
fifty cars each. Livestock shi])ments originate in 
many parts of the seven western states and

months from tlic western prov- 
inces of Canada. 

With the important and en- 
viahle position which San Fran- 
cisco commands as a livestock 
marketint* center it is felt that 
the present is opportune for an 
educational program of livestock 
betterment focused around an 
annual livestock show or display. 

This display or exhibition will 
feature individual and carload 
entries of fat cattle of the three 
leading beef breeds, lambs and 
hogs of ten or twelve other 
breeds raised and fitted for the 
slu)w by the most prominent live- 
stock men and feeders in Utah, 
daho, Oregon, Washington, Ne- 
viuia and California. 

Such an exhibition will have a 
threefokl purjjose. P'irst; it will 
iijterest the producers in the feed- 

g and better finishing of all 
classes of livestock and will 
materially in time aid in the 
situation of too many half fat, or 
plain ill-fed classes in the mar- 
ket runs.

is not now, and 
never has been, one of the big indus- 
tries. Compared to the total volume of business 
in gasoline, steel, bread, dairy produce, clothing, 
shoes, and many other staples the volume of 
jewelry sales in the United States is small. 

In San Francisco the manufacturing of jewelry is 
comparatively unimportant when contrasted with 
the five big leaders such as oils, printing, and so 




y y • 4 forth, all of which makes 

ri 3. 1 2f n t the fact that there has been 

developed here in San Fran- 
cisco a plant employing 160 people with an annual 
payroll of .$250,000 the more interesting. 

Granat Brothers with their manufacturing plant 
at Twentieth and Mission streets have succeeded in 
the last five years in winning national recognition 
in the jewelry trade for the high quality of their 
products. 

Their operations are largely contined to the pro- 
duction of diamond ring mount- 
^^^■■^■■1 ings of gold and platinum, and 
finger rings for men in solid gold, 
the latter being set usually with 
semi-precious stones such as 
amethyst, sapphire, topaz, blood 
stone, and ruby. 

Sales for the year 1929 are 
estimated with accuracy at .$140,- 
000. This sum represents the 
goods produced and delivered to 
other jewelry cslablishments 
only, and does not take into ac- 
count the merchandise delivered 
to, and used by, (iranat's retail 
stores in San Francisco, which 
would add .$200,000 to the total.

big staple inckistrios, the tigures represent a very 
respectaljle stan(iin£> in the jewelry nianufacturini* 
trade, antl it is unlikely that any other manufac- 
turer of similar protluets in the entire coiuitry 
can boast of a lari»er volume. 

The development of this industry in San Fran- 
cisco on the part of the (Iranat Brothers has been 
a very curious and interestini» one. It bei»an 2(1 
years ago when the two iirothers, Joseph and Leo, 
operating a small jewelry repair shop in Stockton 
decidetl that San Francisco offered a larger field 
for contact with retail jewelers. 

They moved their little shop to San Francisco, 
and finally located out in the Mission. Each brother 
worked at the bench and with their half dozen em- 
ployes they kept themselves busy ten to fifteen 
hours a day repairing jewelry, 
and executing certain small spe- 
cial orders for the retail jewelry 
trade. 

In connection with their repair 
shop in the Mission it occurred to 
them one time that it might be 
well to have a retail store, so that 
they might take off their aprons 
occasionally during the day, and 
sell a watch or a piece of jewelry. 
The retail met with surprising 
success and with the enlarged 
output by virtue of supplying the 
retail department with some of 
the merchandi.se used the shop 
shared in the growth. 

One day sliortiy after the war 
a traveling man, re])re.senting an 



eastern manufacturer, in attempting to sell them 
a bill of goods exhil)ited a large order that he had 
taken from a leading concern in Chicago. Coni- 
jniring his samples with the goods they themselves 
I)r()duced Mr. Joseph (rranat said to himself, well, 
if this fellow can sell a bill of goods like that I won- 
der what that house would think of the very 
superior line which we are turning out. In order 
to satisfy his curiosity he thereupon prepared half 
dozen samples of the diamond ring mountings 
which were being made out here in San Francisco, 
and dolling them up in little velvet cases sent them 
back to this CJiicago jeweler with price tags at- 
tached. In the course of a week the sample cases 
were returned from Chicago accompanied by an 
order for !j<25, ()()() worth of his goods. The ('hicago

doctors; cigarettes versus candy; always 
and eternally the new versus the old. to- 
day versus yesterday. 

Style and color are the dictum of the 
present mighty age of change. It must 
be of the moment, artistic-pretty, as 
well as utilitarian. This is the eye appeal 
that the age of color but augments. 
Colored this and colored that, everything 
a delicately hued creation to harmonize 
with one's thought or milady's dress, or 
her shade of hair for the day. 

Once the rock of color was tapped by 
the designer, a flow of new merchandise 
to coax out more purchaser's dollars 
sprang forth; the old was relegated, the 
new bought; business adding materially 
to prosperity. 

"Keep them dissatisfied," says an auto- 
mobile designer, and who knows better 
than he? Who has done a better job of 
keeping up with the times? I sometimes 
think the automotive industry leads this 
giddy procession. 

Color! Color!! Color!!! an age old 
appeal modernized. The apple of Eden 
must have been deep red. Red apples 
still command the highest market. The 
best salmon is white, but good salmon, in 
the buying public's mind, must be pink. 
Color autocracy again. 

But, enough of color. We still thank 
goodness that we have the same old green- 
backs in the banking business, although 
even there the times have decreed a 
change — they are now smaller. 

Although millionaires have become 
fairly plentiful — anything you make at 
the rate of 300 a day, as one market did 
last year, is bound to become an ordinary 
model — money is still stylish, modish 
and at times colorful. 

No use to sigh for the old. view w'th 
alarm or berate the faddist. .As the jur- 
gernaut of [jrogrcss moves on. the increas- 
ing problem of industry is to know which 
way to move, which policies to adopt, so 
that it may keep sanely and safely in 
step with progress. 

Those who do not keep a lookout at 
the bow. and therefore cannot read the 
signs of the times a little in advance of 
their coming, run the ever-present dang t 
of trouble. Industry must stand with its 
hand at the throttle ready to speed up or 
slow down; ready to alter its method in 
line with general progress. 

Only yesterday the big problem was 
scientific production, the art of manu- 
fai luring so thai waste might be elimin- 
ated and overhead e.xpenses cut to the 
minimum. Now, that this has been ac- 
complished, today's problem is scientific 
distribution and the creation of new mar- 
kets lo afford an outlet for these goods. 
Mass production at a smaller margin of 
profits calls for more intensive selling to 
maintain levels already attained. 

As a samph' of the intensive selling 
movement, witness how the automobile 
in the first half of 102<) has displaced 
cotton in our export trade. Figures just 
compiled by the Unif.-d Stales Chamber 



[ continued from page 13 ] 

of Commerce reveal exports of automo- 
biles and accessories for that period total 
$339,160,000 as compared with $310.- 
821.000 for cotton. .\nd cotton has held 
undisputed e.xport leadership since the 
Civil War. 



MAIL SCHEDULE FOR 
MALOLO PASSENGERS 

For the benefit of San Fran- 
ciscans desiring to communicate 
with members of the Around-Pa- 
cific Cruise on board the "Malolo." 
the following mailing schedule has 
been prepared by the American Ex- 
press Company:

Wireless — The "Malolo" will be 
in constant communication with 
wireless stations throughout the 
cruise. 

Registered letters are liable to 
take much longer in transit than 
ordinary letters and should be 
posted earlier to allow for this. 

Parcels — The sending of parcels 
cannot be too strongly discouraged, 
owing to the uncertainty of the 
time taken in transit. 

Postage — Please see that the 
correct postage is placed on the 
letters and papers; otherwise they 
will be delayed and may not reach 
the "Malolo." 

The postage rate to Hilo. Hono- 
lulu and Manila is two cents pei 
ounce. To all other countries the 
rate is five cents for the first ounce 
and three icnis for each additional 
ounce 



Here and there we see along the fast 
trail that business has been traveling, evi- 
dences of some who have suffereti because 
they could not adjust themselves ([uickly 
enough lo the new tempo. 

Hut, modern business men generally 
appreciate the necessity of keeping at- 
tuned to these changes. .And when a sub- 
stitute or rival product appears on the 
horizon, the lookout reports it and the 
sa'ls are set accordinglv. 



If there are any adequate substitutes 
for money or credit, they have not come 
to my attention. Nevertheless, this fact 
doesn't mean the banker can go along in 
the same old channels. As a matter of 
fact, since business depends upon his 
sound advice for guidance in these stren- 
uous days, he must be more alert than 
ever, more keen to detect the trend of 
events a little ahead of the crowd; more 
alert to transmit to this customers advice 
on changing conditions. 

-And his own methods of doing business. 
too. have changed. Credit must stand a 
closer scrutiny than in days of old and 
money nowadays is lent on earning capac- 
ity rather than assets — the old standby. 
The banker has installed the most modern 
machinery and most up-to-date methods 
of supplying service, and in order to pro- 
vide still greater facilities for growing 
business units, which is the order of the 
day. mergers and consolidations are tak- 
ing place in great numbers. 

The banker, too, is demonstrating to 
the world that there is such a thing as 
business statesmanship: he has long since 
deserted the ranks of inert citizenry and 
stands forth not only as a leader in his 
own community, but in the Nation and 
abroad, as well. Participating in interna- 
tional conventions and domestic business 
conferences, his influence often is the 
dominating spirit in civic welfare move- 
ments. In peace councils and reparations 
agreements, his advice is as eagerly 
sought after as that of the international 
politician, for an intimate knowledge of 
finance is essential in gauging the ultimate 
outcome of obligations placed upon any 
people or nation. 

The contagion of change has left its im- 
press on everything in .America and in 
addition has become apparent in lands 
across the seas. Stolid old England, for 
instance, a few months ago discovered 
that the tea lax which caused the .Ameri- 
can revolution was unpopular, and re- 
pealed it. It might be fair, however, to 
add that this wide vision was aided and 
abetted by the political necessities of an 
approaching election. 

Even our national government, which 
in years gone by has remained about as 
immovable as the Rock of Gibraltar, has 
shown signs of yielding to the scintillating 
goddess of change, and may some day 
catch up with the procession. Ii alreadv 
has arranged for a reaptwrlionment of 
representatives - a change nine years 
overdue, according to explicit constitu- 
tional requirement ; and who knows hut 
that the future will see .some re\ision in 
th? time of national elections and thi' 
wholly unneces.<ary intervening lapse of 
several months in assuming olTice— a pro- 
vision originally devised to allow the mot 
dislant member to ride horseback to 
Washington? Fortunately, the newer 
generation is no long.-r content to use old 
ilobbin as a means of transportation: it

OUR NEW 



HUGH B. BANCROFT 
President. Dow, Jones & (^o. 



Wa II y^^ 

Street 

J ournal 




WHEN, less than two years ago, Dow, 
Jones & Co., publishers of The Wall 
Street Journal and operators of the 
largest financial news service in the 
world, added some 3500 additional miles to its 
leased wire system and tied the entire Pacific Coast 
into its big system, the event was remarked as of 
unusual and significant character in coast finan- 
cial development. 

As a direct result of that not 
inconsiderable undertaking 
and its success, has come a 
new determination by the 
same organization even more 
precedential and additionally 
emphatic in its recognition of 
the economic empire of the 
coast. That determination, 
which has now taken concrete 
form, was for the establish- 
ment in San Francisco of an 
edition of The Wall Street 
Journal for distribution 
throughout Pacific Coast terri- 
tory. 

The word "edition" is used 
advisedly. 

Until the Dow, Jones & Co., 
publication, there has been no 
established financial journal of national circula- 
tion and reputation available to Pacific Coast read- 
ers until the elapse of four to five days after its 
publication. Outside the busy wires, and the neces- 
sarily curtailed financial reports of the general 
news press associations, a great and avid body of 
Pacific Coast investors and financial operatives 
have been compelled to wait for their complete 
details and analysis for days. When the publica- 
tions reached them, the news was stale. 




KENNETH C. HOGATE 
Vice President and General Manager 

To divorce the Pacific Coast from clearly nation- 
alized market and financial interests, by establish- 
ment of an individual and separate publication, 
looking eastward, did not solve the problem. 

The answer, which Dow, Jones & Co., after con- 
sultation with Pacific Coast financial leaders, was 
able to give, was a daily edition on the Pacific Coast 
which, appearing simultaneously in an individual 
plant 3000 miles distant from the parent edition, 
still would be able to parallel 
the parent edition, respected 
and demanded by readers 
tliroughout the country and at 
the same time be in a position 
to devote itself to the Pacific 
Coast as a Pacific Coast insti- 
tution. 

The project entailed no 
small problem of organization 
and no mean outlay of capital. 
Once assured of the endorse- 
ment and interest of coast 
financial leaders, Dow, Jones 
c't Co., undertook both. 

As a result The Pacific Coast 
Edition of The Wall Street 
Journal appearing as a daily 
morning financial newspaper, 
published from its own plant 
at 415 Bush Street in San Francisco, has come into 
being. 

It is an independent publication, devoted to "the 
truth in its proper use," long the ruling principle 
by which the late Clarence W. Barron built up the 
Barron group of eminent financial journals. 

Connected with the New York headquarters of 
Dow, Jones & Co., and The Wall Street Journal, 
w^ith an elaborate system of leased wires, which 
now cover more than 90 financial centers and cities

operation to develop our respective com- 
munities to the point where the finer 
things of life may be provided, those 
cultural values created which perhaps 
constitute the broader aim of life, and

of our various communities to the ad- 
vantage of all. 

Industry is a great stimulating force. 
It affords a greater scope for human 
activity directly, and at the same time 
broadens the opportunity for those who 
produce from the ground, the products 
of the land surface and of the mines. 
Naturally, the greatest development of 
industry will take place in the larger 
centers of population, and there develop- 
ment will appear to be disproportionately 
rapid; and yet no metropolis is possible 
e.xcept with an adequatelv developed 
"hinterland." and it is an utterly falla- 
cious theory that the interests of the two 
in any way conflict. 

There seems to be a steadily growing 
reaHzation throughout the occidental 
world of what we of the Pacific Coast 
have long felt sure, that the growth of 
commerce along and across the Pacific 
will be at a rapidly accelerating pace. 
There are ample evidences to justify 
that belief. Figures— and I do not intend 
to quote statistics to any extent, if at 
all — show a steadily increasing com- 
merce between .Atlantic and Pacific ports 
of our country through the Panama 
Canal, with our neighboring countries 
north and south bordering the Pacific 
Ocean, and with the Orient across the 
Pacific. 

That vastly populated country. China, 
is making much more rapid progress not 
only toward national unity, but toward a 
higher economic state, than is generally 
recognized. The statements recentlv made 
m Seattle and in San Francisco' bv so 
sympathetic, keen and intelligent an ob- 
server as Mr. Julean Arnold, the leading 
representative of our United States De- 
partment of Commerce in China, were 
highly illuminating and most encourag- 
ing. It is interesting indeed that in spite 
of the turmoil that existed throughout 
that period. 102S was the banner vear of 
our commerce with China, and l'o20 so 
far shows a verv hea\\' increase over 
102S. 

^ A. movement is spreading throughout 
China toward overcoming illiteracy, 
ignorance, and the consequent .spirit of 
isolation, through educating the masses 
by the use of a simplified alphabet. This 
outgrowth of the elTort begun bv that 
great Chinese, descendant of the 'familv 
ol Confucious, graduate of two of our 
leading .Xmerican universities, whom we 
of .\nierica alYectionately call "Jimmie"

desires to secure and study them, from 
the Bureau of loreign and Domestic 
Commerce of the United Stales Depart- 
ment of Commerce; and at this juncture, 
I cannot refrain from expressing my 
cordial appreciation of the remarkable 
work that is being done in behalf of 



I 



October 9, 1929

American commerce by our United States 
Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Com- 
merce, and my high regard for its per- 
sonnel. There is nothing they consider 
too great an effort on their part in the 
interest of developing American com- 
merce or of serving the individual Ameri- 
can business man. I say these things out 
of my own personal experience. 

We have then, this combination of 
circumstances or conditions: a western 
spirit, and therefore, a natural bond of 
sympathy; an abundance and variety of 
natural resources, including climatic and 
scenic attractions; a fairly well developed 
and constantly improving system of 
transportation, land and water; a mar- 
ket, in our western territory alone, suf- 
ficient to justify a considerably increased 
industrial development ; a magnet of 
foreign trade opportunities upon the Pa- 
cific and foreign and domestic trade 
through the Panama Canal. 

As to industrial development that has 
taken place during the last decade and a 
half, namely, the fifteen years ending 
with 1928, let me present, merely as an 
example, what has taken place in Cali- 
fornia: the value of manufactured prod- 
ucts (some two billion, six hundred mil- 
lion dollars in 1027) in California, now 
exceeds the combined value of the prod- 
ucts of the farm, the forests, the mines 
and the fisheries. California has already 
become an industrial state. In the last 
fifteen years, its manufacturing payrolls 
increased 84%, the products of manu- 
facture 114%, and the value of manu- 
factured products 360%. I quote these 
California figures as an evidence of west- 
ern progress. In 1925 to 1927, two years, 
there was no increase in the total of U. S. 
manufacture, but the Pacific Coast 
showed an increase of 4% or about 160 
million dollars. 

What does this mean to the "hinter- 
land"? In the first place, a greater outlet 
for many of its raw materials. For in- 
stance, Washington and Oregon supply 
two-thirds of California's requirements 
of lumber — Utah furnishes California 
her coal and iron — Arizona, Nevada and 
Utah, a large proportion of California's 
copper consumption — Nevada supplies 
gypsum — Idaho and Montana, manga- 
nese. These are merely examples, and the 
list might be greatly lengthened. 

Certain types of agriculture that were 
carried on extensively in California are 
being crowded out, and dependence must 
be placed upon the other states of Cali- 
fornia's "hinterland" to produce those 
things; and in proportion as the indus- 
trial and supplemental population in- 
creases, so will the market for all of the 
products of the "hinterland" increase; 
while in turn, the industrial product will 
find a more ready market through the 
development of the "hinterland," and 
with it more manufacturing or industry 
in that "hinterland" or back country. I 
like to refer to this as the beneficial spiral 
of progress. 

I merely use California's situation as 
illustrative. Through my service on the 
directorate of our California State Cham- 
ber of Commerce and as chairman of

Turning to the international from the 
domestic picture I will remind you that 
America's best neighbor, both in the mat- 
ter of trade and in friendly relations, is 
that large and rapidly developing coun- 
try to the north; that vigorous and virile, 
industrious and healthy youngster among 
the nations — CANADA. In 1756 Voltaire 
wrote of what is now Canada as "a few 
acres of ice" for which England made 
war on France. Some years later Kipling 
wrote a poem describing the Dominion 
as "Our Ladv of the Snows." There was 



a long period, even in recent years, when 
people had a totally erroneous impression 
of Canadian chmate and life. The coun- 
try was pictured as wild and woolly and 
tourists sometimes expressed amazement 
that we had modem plumbing and paved 
streets. 

The world now knows Canada, how- 
ever, as a country of immense possi- 
bilities, possessing the greatest undevel- 
oped natural resources in minerals, tim- 
ber, and fisheries concentrated within the 
borders of any nation: favored with al-

There is still pioneering in Canada, 
but the pioneers of today work with tools

others that forests are not inexhaustible 
and must be conserved and replenished. 
The trapper and hunter supplement the

outlaws those thieves of fodder, the scrub

handled by modern appliances and under 
the most hygienic conditions. 

The prospector for minerals and the 
seeker for land in remote parts of the 
Dominion use the aeroplane to transport 
them to convenient bases for their ex- 
plorations. Aeroplane patrols protect the 
forests, and even the Canadian North- 
west mounted police — with which the 
movies have made you familiar — some- 
times use aircraft fitted with skiis or 
pontoons for landing gear, in place of the 
dog team and the canoe, as he journeys 
to the far north in the interests of peace. 
In Canada's new frontiers — of the Peace 
River and Hudsons Bay. now coming 
under development — settlers have no 
need to work with rille at hand to repell 
the raider as did the former pioneers of 
Canada and the United Slates. The de- 
velopment of Canada is not impeded by 
insecurity of property or person. Canada 
is one of the most orderly, well governed 
and law-abiding nations. 

Canada is not only the best customer 
of the United States, but these two coun- 
tries are the world's best neighbors. "The 
heart of a nation is more important than 
treaties," said former President Coolidge. 
in his message a year ago. It always will 
be. The United States and Canada could 
get along for another century or two 
without war and without peace treaties 
because these are peoples who think in 
terms of peace. 

.\s you are well aware, in the matter of 
trade the United States have very large- 
ly supplanted (Jreat Britain as a seller to 
Canada. For the 12 months ended June 
,iO of this year Canada's foreign trade 
aggregated over two billion three hundred 
sixty-two million dollars, of which one 
billion one hundred million dollars, or 
more than 45',, was with the United 
States. Canadian imports in the period 
totaled $1,142,004,404, of which $740,- 
041,104 were from the United States; 
thus Canada is buying approximately 
two-thirds of her total imports from the 
United States. 

Meanwhile, Canadian exports for the 
12 months ended June .?0. last, totaled 
j;i.220,52(),.M8. of which but $470.041,. 
104 were sold to the L'nited States -a 
balance of trade in vour favor of $2()0,- 
550,700, 

This adverse trade balance in the inter- 
change of goods with the United Stales

has caused considerable criticism in some 
Canadian circles. Certain political lead- 
ers have recently gone on record as fa- 
voring discouragement of Canadian buy- 
ing in this country to an amount com- 
mensurate with American buying from 
Canada. This view has been strengthened 
to some extent by continued efforts and 
proposals by the United States to in- 
crease the already high tariffs against 
Canadian importations. 

American business men are fully con- 
scious of the value of their trade relations 
with Canada and would be willing to 
make concessions to retain and increase it. 

Let me remind you that for the year 
ended June 30, Canada bought approxi- 
mately four times as much from the 
United States as from Great Britain, and 
more than twice as much as from all other 
countries in the British Commonwealth 
group. 

The American markets for wheat and 
live stock are virtually closed to Canada 
by prohibitive duties. These two com- 
modities constitute the larger share of 
the Dominion's principal products. 

Tariffs have their usefulness, partic- 
ularly in new countries where young in- 
dustries must be nurtured, but you must 
agree there are reasonable limits for such 
protection. Trade relations to attain their 
most helpful and permanent state must 
be somewhat reciprocal. Even the con- 
servative opinion of Canadian bankers, 
who rarely comment on controversial 
matters, has been directed against Ameri- 
can tariff proposals. One of these re- 
cently stated publicly: 

"Suggestions that the United States 
should further raise her tariff walls to 
Canadian imports must eventually result 
in Canada taking steps to seek more fa- 
vorable trade agreements with other 
countries and to change the present rela- 
tionship with the United States with 
measures for her own protection. With 
other nations looking to the United States 
for assistance in reconstructing the world 
economic organization, the proposed tariff 
increases would constitute a severe blow 
at international economic operations and 
good will. 

"It is not only fitting, but it is a devel- 
opment which grows naturally, that Ca- 
nadian trade in the future will turn more 
and more to those countries willing to 
trade with Canada on something like 
equal terms." 

Still another banker, the head of one 
of the large Canadian institutions, stated : 

"If the United States does not adjust 
matters (in regard to international trade) 
by buying more from us so that trade 
will be on a more even basis, then it 
would seem that Canada must try to in- 
crease its sales elsewhere by diverting as 
much as possible of its e.xcess purchases 
from the United States to those coun- 
tries which are better customers of ours, 
in order to more fully reciprocate for 
their purchases from us." 

As a Canadian, I know that until the 
time comes when increased population 
enables Canada to build larger internal 
markets, she must find an outlet for her 
large surplus of agricultural products, live 
stock and other commodities, abroad. It 



is true, of course, that the principle of 
buying in the cheapest market and selling 
in the most profitable one, must govern 
trade operations. But the talk of higher 
tariffs, despite your already favorable 
balance of trade with Canada, is not a 
development likely to increase the popu- 
larity of American goods in Canada. 

The Dominion is well organized in the 
matter of foreign trade. She is included 
in the British preference plan and has 
"favored nations" treaties with many 
countries. In addition to Federal and 
Provincial commercial departments, Can- 
ada has a country-wide organization of 
Boards of Trade and Chambers of Com- 
merce. These are constantly surveying 



trade possibilities with all sections of the 
world, enabling Canada to spread her pur- 
chases abroad to advantage, and in a way 
to encourage in turn increased buying 
from Canada, 

Canada now has 32 Trade Commission- 
ers' offices located in the world's greatest 
business centers. This service in the past 
has been of great assistance to the Ca- 
nadian trader dealing abroad. It is bound 
to be of even greater service in the future 
as the country's foreign trade grows. 

The policy of the Canadian Govern- 
ment in increasing her trade representa- 
tion in the United States is an indication 
of the growing emphasis which is placed 
upon the cultivation of a still larger vol- 



THE NEW BUICK 

^mart • 'Reliable ■ 'Beautiful 




Twenty-six years of fine engineering have evolved 
the Buick chassis . . . and two-to-one sales leadership 
in its field has made possible Buick's low price. 

The matchless quality of this chassis, plus Buick's greater beauty 
and luxury, has enabled Buick to maintain unrivaled sales leader- 
ship throughout a long period of years. And that sales leadership, 
in turn, has made it possible for Buick to establish a new order of 
value by bringing forth this greatest Buick of them all, at new 
low prices. The result is that demand for Buick for 1930 is sweeping 
to new high levels, far surpassing the record of any previous Buick 
and ranging from two to five times as great as the demand for any 
other fine car, from $1200 on up to the highest price. 

Facts such as these regarding owner preference for the Buick chassis 
are impressive even in cold type. And they become irresistible 
when you compare this chassis — the staunch foundation of Buick 
leadership — and prove its superiority on the road. Make this 
comparison before buying any automobile, regardless of price. 
Then trust your own preference for Buick.

description of the Buick chassis

United States. Until the present year 
Canada had only one trade commissioner 
in the United States, but an oifice has 
now been opened in Chicago and another 
v/ill be opened in San Francisco in the 
near future. 

Extension of Canada's foreign trade 
has been most aggressive, especially in 
the last few years. Canada has now a 
profitable interchange of goods with 
seventy-five or more countries in all parts 
of the world. Canada holds fifth place 
among the countries of the world for both 
exports and imports: 

In 1913 in imports the Dominion oc- 
cupied eighth place but in 1927 she had 
advanced to fifth place, displacing the 
Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. 



In 1913 in export trade. Canada was 
in tenth position, but in 1927 she had 
moved up to fifth position displacing 
the Netherlands. British India. Belgium. 
Italy and Argentina. 

With reference to export trade per 
capita. Canada has advanced from 
seventh place in 1913 to second place in 
1927. surpassed only by New Zealand. 

Canada exceeds all countries for favor- 
able trade balances since the year of 192 5. 

One development of Canadian foreign 
trade which has become somewhat 
marked, is the tendency of American 
firms to establish plants in Canada. There 
are now approximately 1500 of such 
plants, a valuable addition to the indus- 
trial hfe of the country. They comprise 
a large portion of America's investments,

of about $4,000,000,000 in the Dominion. 

Two immediate reasons are back of the 
estabhshment of such plants. First, be- 
cause of economic advantages repre- 
sented by the nearness to raw materials 
and shorter hauls in distribution. Second 
for the overcoming of sales resistance. 
As you would imagine. Canadian-made 
goods are taken in preference to those of 
foreign origin providing price factors are 
the same. 

Doubtless another important consid- 
eration in the setting up of these Ameri- 
can factories in Canada, is that the 
Dominion through preferential trade 
agreements within the British Common- 
wealth and with France, has many ad- 
vantages to offer the exporter which the 
United States does not possess. A con- 
sideration of the future in connection 
with American manufacturing in Canada, 
is that prejudice resulting from tariff 
matters, tending to discourage sales of 
American goods, would be offset. 

The present trend appears to be in the 
direction of the further extension and 
amplification of the existing preferential 
trade agreements between Canada and 
the various units of the British Common- 
wealth of Nations and other countries. 
This would indicate that in the future the 
United States manufacturer will meet 
with increased competition in his foreign 
markets. This factor is encouraging more 
and more United States manufacturers 
interested in retaining their export busi- 
ness, to consider the establishment of a 
branch factory in Canada. Other favor- 
able factors, such as a lower rate of in- 
come tax, also constitute an inducement 
to the United States manufacturer. 
* * * * 

In detailing some of the stages of 
growth in Canada's foreign trade I have 
been asked by your committee to make 
a special reference to similar opportun- 
ities that present themselves to the Pa- 
cific Coast community. There are manv 
products in California which could be 
developed, and there are many practises 
in Canada, it is claimed, which are worth 
while considering on the Pacific Coast, 
where there is a somewhat similar status 
in the export development of agricultural 
by-products and specialties other than the 
big staples. 

To mention one instance I would refer 
to the splendid record of Canada Dry 
Ginger .Me, Ltd., in developing foreign 
markets. /\s a direct result of the effort^ 
of this company's export departmeiil. 
Iheir practically unexcelled ginger ale 
may he obtained in all parts of the world. 
Canada Dry Ciinger .Me. Ltd., was incor- 
porated in Canada in 192S as a consolida- 
tion of J. J. McLaughlin, Ltd., a company 
incorporated in Ontario in l'>24, and its 
subsidiary, Caledonia Springs, Ltd. Its 
plants are located in Toronto. Edmonton 
and .Montreal. The daily capacity of the 
'I'oronto and l'",dmonton plants is respee- 
tively 50,000 and 20,000 bottles. These 
organizations are the largest manufac- 
turers of ginger ale in the world and arc 
also large distributors of mineral wat<r- 
and soft drinks. Some credit for then 
foreign exjiansion is due to initiation nl

selling, at the time of the purchase of the 
capital stock of the Canadian company 
by Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Inc. The 
management of these companies is un- 
usually able. And so, you see, what you 
do with live enterprises that are ripe for 
development in this Pacific Coast area 
depend a great deal on the men you put 
at the head of your companies. To use 
an old saw of a bank credit manager: 
"Get management, better management, 
and still more management!" Give your 
export managers, who are exceptionally 
fitted for positions as vice presidents and 
heads of companies, through their very 
able handling of trying export problems, 
a chance to be executives and show what 
they can do. 

Big eastern corporations are now- 
planning to seek representation in Pacific 
markets in order to serve an increasing 
foreign trade demand from new sources. 
As an example of this tendency the United 
States Steel Corporation is now negotiat- 
ing for the Columbia Steel Corporation. 
San Francisco. The United States Steel 
Corporation, the largest concern of its 
kind in the world, has not previously 
operated in the Pacific district. 

There are marvelous markets awaiting 
your enterprise in the Pacific regional 
markets — just think of it. Three-quarters 
of the total population of our Globe live 
in countries bordering upon the Pacific 
Ocean. 

The potential purchasing power of 
Asia alone is so great that no one may 
dare to figure what this market and the 
Orient will demand in the next decade 
or so. It is granted that their purchasing 
power now, individually, is not as great as 
some other countries, but it will i^row in 
leaps and bounds as they are brought up 
to a higher living plane through better 
methods of agriculture transplanted from 
America, Canada and England. The much 
mentioned recent bringing closer together 
of all nations by radio, airplane, airship, 
television, etc., will do much to speed up 
that great day. It was pitiful to stand in 
Egypt, where I stood in that fertile Nile 
delta last April, and see the primitive 
implements of agriculture in use by the 
Egyptians, Vou can go home and open 
your Bibles tonight and read of the meth- 
ods then used, and you can see what I saw 
on the banks of the Nile River. Vou will 
see the picture of women driving oxen 
drawing a plow made of a bent piece of a 
tree root, sowing seed by hand and draw- 
ing the water by man power in buckets, 
because it is cheaper to have laborers do 
it than supply feed for oxen to raise the 
life-giving waters of irrigation. Think of 
it, the oldest seat of known civilization, 
after all these years has not the advan- 
tages that you now enjoy in this Pacific 
Coast territory. No gasoline engines, trac- 
tors, binders and threshers such as you 
have. Grain is still ground in hollow 
stones by hand. And there are many 
other countries in your neighboring con- 
tinents, and in Mexico, where they are 
praying for North American methods 
and machinery to bring them new na- 
tional life. 

I could go on and on enumerating the 
golden opportunities that lie before you 



in these Pacific United States and West- 
ern Provinces of Canada. But I won't. 

I have sought to give you the Canadian 
viewpoint on commercial relations with 
the United States. I hope there has been 
a germ of something in what I have said 
that will result in a better understanding 
of Canada and Canadians. 

Before closing, I would only stress this. 
There is jealousy among certain foreign 
nations because of the profitable trade 
between Canada and the United States. 



A by-product of this jealousy is the circu- 
lation of propaganda designed to disturb 
both our business relations and interna- 
tional good will. The utterances of poli- 
tical or quasi-patriotic leaders, gentle- 
men, may furnish ammunition for these 
propagandists and do almost incalculable 
damage to our business and financial 
operations, and disturb our interchange 
of trade. Ultimately it would be the 
American wage earner who would suffer. 
Let us avoid such an eventualitv!

[ continued from page 23 J 

that organization's Industrial Commit- 
tee, I have naturally had to give attention 
to California's industrial progress, and 
therefore, little as I claim to know about 
it, I do perhaps know somewhat more 
than I do with regard to the other states 
of our western division. I know this, 
however, that California's progress is 
very definitely dependent upon the sound 
development of this whole western terri- 



tory, which commands California's most 
sympathetic interest. 

What can we concretely do? I believe 
that everj' section should through its 
local Chamber of Commerce, or its 
equivalent organization, make a careful 
study for all practical purposes of its 
resources, that those who have been inter- 
ested in the development of their com
